Historical view

The first written mention of the mill comes from 1746 from the General Inventory of Kieleckie and Samsonowskie landed estates and it shows that the mill already existed at the end of the 17th century and from October 22, 1700 it was owned by Jędrzej Wieczorek. In the 20th century, the mill was owned by a village for several years, and in 1957 it was bought by Teodor Komorniczak.

Teodor Komorniczak dismantled the wooden mill and replaced it with a brick one, in which a Francis turbine was installed (the mill operated until 2001). The currently preserved water system from the 19th century has already been recognized as a monument.

The Archimedean screw hydroelectric power plant is adjacent to the old mill building.
