Languages of publication
In this article I attempt to reconstruct the layout and form of Dwór II [Manor house II] in Strzyża Górna and to present its owner. The manor house was one of several manor houses situated in the upper part of the Strzyża Górna stream. On 17 September 1761 a wealthy merchant from Gdansk Frantz Gottfried Rottenburg became its owner. He was a Catholic associated with the affluent families of other Catholics from Gdansk via family and social connections. The families he was connected with were: the Brunattis (his wife came from this family), the de Matthys, the Metzells and the Schultzs. Some time after he had purchased the manor house in Strzyża Górna, the house was totally reconstructed and rebuilt. Both the house and the garden were planned according to the fashion of the period. The advantages of its location were taken to the full. At the back of the house there was a garden in the form of a terrace, admired by numerous visitors. It was at this side of the house that all the representative rooms of the manor house, guest-rooms, and the orangery were located. From the upstairs it was possible to enjoy a view at the meadows and the sea.
