History: 

Keller was founded on 12 May 1767 by colonists who had been recruited by LeRoy & Pictet. It was named after Johannes Keller, the first mayor (Vorsteher) of the colony.

It was raided by the nomadic Kirghiz in 1774 and most of the colony was destroyed.  Those colonists who survived resettled to other colonies, and some became part of a newly founded colony in 1776 called Neu-Kolonie.

Today, nothing remains of the former Volga German colony of Keller.

Church: 

The original colonists who settled in Keller were of the Roman Catholic faith.  There were no known religious structures constructed in Keller before it was destroyed in 1774.
