History

The town received Magdeburg rights in 1360 from king Casimir the Great of Poland It was located in the valley of the Sępólna River, which flooded the old castle because of its proximity to a nearby lake The town belonged to the Ostroróg family

During the Thirteen Years' War between Poland and the Teutonic Knights the area was captured by the Knights and the town itself looted In the 18th century the town had a number of weavers, shoemakers and farmers The Jews of the town traded textiles and other fabricated goods to both West Prussia and East Prussia A new synagogue was built in 1734
