Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. The oldest preserved gravestone relates to the first half of the 18th century, so it can be assumed that the cemetery emerged during that period. First, it appears on the Third Austrian survey in the 1880s. Later it was marked on Polish maps of 1939.
