The Duchy of Saxony underwent the Reformation in 1539 and Seehausen became Protestant. The first church was built in the 13th century, in the romanesque Choir tower. In 1560, the parish property, with all its buildings, acres and garden was sold for 150 guilder to the farmer George Dyme. The church was further renovated in 1663 for 174 Thalers. Around the 15th century, the church was renovated, by increasing the height of the tiny Romanesque windows in the Gothic style. The church also received a new altar.
