The sheepfold
The St. Florian Manor Barn (commonly known as “the sheepfold”) is one of the former manor farm outbuildings of the Czecz Family Palace in Kozy. It was probably erected in the latter half of the 17th century when the squire of the district of Kozy Dolne was the nobleman Władysław Rej (great-grandson of the famous Renaissance Polish poet Mikołaj Rej). The exact date of construction is unknown, but according to records, the lintel structure in the cellar contained a datestone with the inscription 167?, sadly lost to the Second World War. Listed in the Register of Historic Places, the barn is the oldest building in Kozy and one of the oldest brick structures in the district of Bielsko-Biała. The common name “sheepfold” dates from the early 19th century when the aristocratic family of Jordan used the barn for sheep farming. The barn is a low, square structure with cut corners and a courtyard. It has stone-and-brick walls and a hipped roof covered with wooden shingles. Originally, the barn had six entrances and an ice house in the south-western corner. Its most distinctive feature is the late Baroque brick gate crowned with an arched gable. Above the gate is a niche which contained a 17th century wooden sculpture of St. Florian until the 1970s (currently in the Adolf Zuber Historical Chamber in Kozy).

From the mid 20th century, the building was used by the local cooperative as a warehouse for fertilizers. It is currently private property.
