The Borth family house
The house was erected in the latter half of the 18th century, when Kozy was owned by the Jordan family. That period saw the greatest number of brick houses erected for servants and craftsmen in Kozy. Its design is typical of the stately brick farmhouse with thick walls that can still be found in the regions of Cieszyn Silesia and Małopolska. The house features a vestibule, vaulted cellars, hip roof and, most conspicuously, a vaulted entranceway with seats on both sides. Originally, it was inhabited by various craftsmen – a shoemaker, a butcher, a carpenter, a tailor and a tavern-keeper. In the mid-19th century, the house and the entire property of the Jordan family were auctioned off and the new owner sold the house to the Skutek family from Cieszyn Silesia who converted it to a cheese factory, which was later taken over by the Barthelmus family. By the end of the 19th century the house was purchased by the Borth family (also from Cieszyn Silesia). Its representative Karol Borth decided to open a bakery here, which operated until the outbreak of the Second World War. Karol Borth was also the mayor and head of the Voluntary Fire Brigade. After Karol, the bakery was run by his son Rudolf (the preserved signboard of Rudolf Borth’s bakery is in the collection of the Historical Chamber). Another prominent representative of the Borth family was Dr Władysław Borth, an activist in the Versailles Plebiscite  and participant in the Silesian Uprisings.
