Lime Kiln Grace Stone

Above the village, on the road to Kletno, there is an old lime kiln which has been classified as a cultural monument. The building was designed in the early 19th century by Karl Friedrich Schinkel. It was restored in 1978 by the family of Prof. Jacek Rybczyński and is the seat of the German-Polish Booster Club Lime Kiln Grace Stone, the Museum Lime Kiln, and the editorial office of the regional historical journal Stronica Śnieżnika.
