The Mickiewicz manor, by Napoleon Orda
|Elevation||184 m (604 ft)|
The village was the site of the farm and manor house belonging to the Mickiewicz family, probably the birthplace in 1798 of Adam Mickiewicz, when (following the Third Partition of Poland in 1795) the area lay within the Russian Empire.
In 1806 the lands passed to the Stypułkowski family, and in 1831 were confiscated by the imperisal government as punishment for Lucjan Stypułkowski's participation in the November Uprising. Between 1918 and 1939 the village was in the Second Polish Republic, and in 1927 a monument to Mickiewicz was placed there. The manor and its surroundings were reconstructed in 1996.
