Nowa Kościelna is a village founded in 1352, which in the early 19th Century had 560 residents, including 106 Mennonites.
The village’s cultural landscape has largely been preserved, particularly the wooden architecture from the 19thCentury, including 4 arcade houses and a wooden granary. One such structure is the house owned by the Wiebe family, which was erected here in the 18th Century. The arcade is supported on columns from the gable side. On the first floor, the building is half-timbered with brick. Inside, there are 3 rooms from the east, a wide hall running along the entire building, and in the perpendicular wing there is a large room, ollier, and a “black kitchen”.
