HistoryEdit

Wörnersberg was first documented in 1364, in 1487 a church was built. The Duchy of Württemberg acquired 1614 "semi Wörnersberg with all righteousness". The division did not last long, because already in 1625 bought Württemberg also the other half of the village with five farmers and a half day laborers.

ReligionsEdit

Wörnersberg had indeed a church, but no priest. The pastor was supported from the parish Grömbach. Wörnersberg had to give him a horse and after the service a meal. The Protestant church community Wörnersberg has a former pilgrimage church (Our Lady) with Romanesque and Gothic elements and is part of the church district Nagold.
