The church was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990. Built in 1898, the red sandstone late gothic revival style chapel was originally constructed as a Union Sunday School chapel for Lutheran and Reformed congregations. It is located at 114 E. Main St. (Route 897) in the West Cocalico Township village of Reinholds near the Lancaster and Berks County lines.
A fundraiser for the church, this small, long-running show always held the first Saturday of August was founded by the late Mary Snyder and Gladys Eckenrode. Today, church historian Eckenrode runs the show on her own with the assistance of other volunteers.
