Crypt of the important Prussian minister

The last owner of the dominion of Frucht was Baron Karl vom und zum Stein, born in Nassau in 1757, who as Prussian minister initiated important reforms, especially the abolition of serfdom and the establishment of local self-administration. In 1807 Stein had a family vault with a neo-Gothic burial chapel built for his parents and for himself in Frucht, where he still owned important land and forest. After his death in 1831, the important Prussian minister also found his last resting place in the village. Translated with (free version)
