Historic Grain Mill


The mill was built in the 1840s and operated on water energy. It was built and operated until World War II by members of the Hilbert family. In the 1930s the Mill was expanded and much modernised. It was also provided with an electrical drive.  It was one of the largest of that type in Lower Silesia.  After World War II, for 10 years it was managed by the Red Army and afterwards used by various state-owned companies. Without modernisation and major changes in the equipment the mill operated by the end of 2016. It retained a complete image of milling technology of the 1930s.  

Within the activities of the Foundation for the Protection of Silesian Industrial Heritage, the Mill will be transformed into a Grain Milling Museum. The project covers the maintenance of an operating facility with complete historic production equipment of the 1930s.  Now design works are under way to adapt the historic facility for tourist traffic.
