St. Dorothy Church from Wolanów is one of a few old, wooden churches retained on the area of Mazovia. It still houses three wooden late-Baroque alters and a pulpit. A valuable finish of the alters is constituted by golden open-work woodcarving with a motif of grapevine and angel’s wings. The side altars house precious 17th-century oil painting which present God’s Prominence and St. Thecla. Painting, painted in a Venetian style by anonymous painters, present good artistic skills. Thanks to long-term maintenance works 18th-century wall painting were discovered and protected. They present a rich interior of the bricked Baroque temple. The existence of these painting constitutes the uniqueness of the church from Wolanów.
The church founder was Anna from Janicki family Kwaśniewska, the owner of nearby villages Kowala-Duszocina and Strzałków. The temple was probably erected in the place of an older church, disassembled earlier. It was located upon the North-Eastern edge of the village, at the height of approx. 100 m from the old track of Piotrków, which in this place was forked to the South towards Kowale-Duszociny and to the East towards Radom, located approx. 12 km away, and then towards Lublin.
Within 150 years the church underwent several renovations and smaller repairs. The most important change in the shape of the church’s block took place in 1896, when the parish of Wolanów was extended with several villages, which resulted in the fact that the small temple could not crowd more worshippers. The then priest, father Andrzej Zubrzycki, resolved to build a new church but the gathered funds enabled him only to develop the aisles of the existing church in Western direction. Hence the Western wall of the aisle was cut off and extended with a part bricked from sandstone in a Neo-Gothic style.
The current appearance of the church presented upon the area of the heritage park reflects its appearance at the turn of the 19th century. The church was built in a quoin structure of larch beams. The walls of the aisle and presbytery are covered with shingle from the outside. The shingle roof is covered with a rainbow Baroque tower with a signature.
