Zajączkowo – St John’s Church


   The church was built at the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries. Its functioning was provided by four voloks of lands, which in the 16th century used the Rokusz family of Dźwierzna. Over time, the temple began to decline, but was rebuilt in the 17th century by the heir of Konarski. During the Partitions the Prussian government ordered the demolition, which was partially carried out despite opposition in 1865.


   The church was an aisleless temple with a sacristy from the north, a porch from the south and two gables from the east and west. For its construction, erratic stones were used, bonded with lime mortar. The church was covered with a gable roof, and the sacristy with a wooden roof. The entrance led from the west through a pointed, stepped and moulded portal, and from the south through a pointed portal located in the porch.
