Jerzmanowo – St Hedwig’s Church

History

The church of St. Hedwig in Jerzmanowo was mentioned for the first time in 1316. The chancel comes from this period. The tower and sacristy were added in the middle of the fifteenth century. At the end of the 16th century, the southern porch was built and the tower was raised. In 1529, for over one hundred years, it was taken over by Evangelicals. In 1706 a new sacristy was erected, and in 1835, the matronea were extended.
