The congregation met in an unoccupied school in the village until World War I, when the building was taken over for military purposes and the village made the town hall available. The elder was Benjamin Peterschmitt, who served 1891-1932, continuing at Neuf-Brisach after the congregation was formed. The membership of Wolfganzen was some 130.
