Around 1570 a chapel is mentioned in Hirschegg. The first time we find the place name in the annual diary 1499, where it says in a document: “… located on the hierssegg, dz picture dar. Instead.” As “image” is a shrine or a small chapel to understand. In 1767 the chapel received a new tower. In 1804, the foundation stone was laid for rebuilding the church. In 1806, today’s church was inaugurated. The Walser artist Maximilian Seelenmayer created in 1837 “The Last Supper” in the choir bow, 1907 was an extensive interior design. At that time, Xaver Dietrich, a pupil of Prof. Ritter von Feuerstein, painted the paintings on the chancel, in the country house, the Emporendecke and the four corner medallions of the church fathers. In 1987, the church square was redesigned. Noteworthy is the equipped with Bronzereliefs village well. On the eight basin walls there are representations of proverbial wisdom in the Walser dialect to designs by the Walser artist Detlef Willand.
