St. Sebastian 1900

Würselen's parish church of St. Sebastian around 1900. Nothing has been preserved of the church mentioned in 870. The tower dates from the second half of the 12th century.

In 1906, district master builder Heinrich van Kann was in charge to plan another expansion. The electric tram started operating on the Haaren - Kaninsberg - Würselen - Bardenberg line in 1896 and continued until 1953.
