On October 21th 2023, the Domus Polonorum meeting took place in the historic manor in Tułowice, owned by the Association members.
The host, talking interestingly about the beginnings of the manor’s reconstruction, took us back in time to the late 1970s. In the times when the local authorities were waiting for the complete collapse of the remains of the manor building in order to build a new building for the commune office there, the local population cut down the last ceiling beams for firewood, but the conservator, in his wisdom, tried to help the owner enough to as much as he could, he would overcome official obstacles and raise the monument from ruin.
Andrzej Novak-Zempliński was the first private owner of the manor purchased in the times of the Polish People’s Republic. He paved the way for others and set a great example with his work, attention to content and form.
We saw the park layout with a mound and a monument commemorating the Battle of the Bzura River, as well as a park chapel, in the construction of which the sculptor and stucco artist Wiesław Winkler took part.
A separate part of the meeting was the presentation of a collection of carriages, particularly valuable because it contains unique and outstanding vehicles of Polish production.
