The article describes a residential house with a campanile, a very rare design in rural housing, and the history of an extraordinary bell-ringer living in Lubomierz, a village bordering on the Gorce and Beskid Wyspowy. This village is inhabited by highlanders who belong to the Zagórzanie group. In 1954 Franciszek Niedospial (called a highlander after the elements of the traditional highlanders' costume regularly worn by him) built a small wooden house at a certain distance from the last buildings of the Surma estate. The house features a kitchen, an entrance hall open on both sides and a stable. On the shingled roof a small campanile was erected, with a small wrought iron cross, mounted in an upside-down metal kettle. The campanile became home to a consecrated Loretto bell (cast in 1966), with which the bell-ringer warded off the clouds and storms, thus protecting the neighbouring fields and crops against disaster. His power extended as far as the sound of the bell was heard. This story of the highlander, a landlord, bell-ringer, horticulturalist, who died in 1970, is still alive in the minds of the older inhabitants of the village. His house with the campanile has been preserved until today.
