Dwór w Niemcach przestał istnieć
THE MANOR HOUSE AT NIEMCE CEASED TO EXIST
Languages of publication
The widely discussed case of demolition in 1974 of a wooden manor, house at Niemce, Lubartów district by its usor, a State Farm is dealt with by the author. Already in 1972—1973, as a result of field inspection carried out by a team of experts from the Institute of Polish Art, Polish Academy of Sciences it was perfectly known that this historic building was systematically devastated. The author presents the fragments from correspondence between the user and the Voivodship Conservator from which it clearly follows that persons heading the State Farm were aware about the historic values of the manor house. Wishing to perpetuate the memory of this building the author presents the description of building erected in the first half of the 19 th century. The original structure was erected in the form of carcass constructed of wood which with time has been cladded with brick and plastered. In a single-floor, double-duct manor house with a column-supported porch were preserved the parquetry floors and ancient finishings. The gable roof was partly covered with shingles. In the course of surveys carried out it has proved that architectural forms present in the manor house supplied a model for buildings in the village of Niemce where up to the present day be found the farm houses having the same forms.
