The object was founded from premiums of inhabitants of the parish of Jedlnia, who in a response to the parson’s initiative, father Józef Skoczeski, resolved to the build the Church House in Poświętne. The idea was most probably based upon Folk Houses which were then popular in the village. The Church House performed educational functions in the parish. It housed, amongst other, a room with a stage and a guest rooms in the attic.
After the war the building was taken away from the parish in Jedlnia and given to the local commune. Since then it has been used as a place for organization of meetings of different teenage groups and institutions, such as Poland’s Service, Union of Polish Youth, etc. Its rooms served for organization of film displays, stage shows and dances. In the 1970s it started to be used less frequently and was eventually closed.
In order to build the Church House the inhabitants brought the highlanders, who erected the building, the architecture of which reminded of the region of Podhale. Especially the big, shingle roof with tops decorated with a motif of the sun is close to this style. The roof is also equipped with small windows – “oeil-de-boeufs”. The walls are made of thick beams and are connected at quoins in locks.
Object of temporal exhibitions.
