Opoczyńskie - this our region. We live on his edge, from far from main tracks in small laid over river Pilicą village Myślakowice.
Our primary school was built in 1998. Children attended here from Myślakowice and nearby villages : Łęgonice Małe, Różanna, Dąbrowa and Myślakowice Kolonia.
But in old school building, which had been built by wood before the Second World War, was created in 2002 ‘THE HOUSE OF FOLK TRADITION OF OPOCZNO REGION’
Owing to local society, pupils, teachers, but especially head teacher Bożena Wielgus, we collected many objects and tools. They really were in use by local people in Pilica region.
There are many of unique photographs of village and inhabitants. More of this photographs were taken in early XX C.
There gather local songs, which were prepared for print. This songs are still singing by School Folk Group ic Jan Czerski.
Accumulating former tools and old folk clothes, recalling old songs and exhibiting reproduction old photographs, we want to rescue them from oblivion, everything what was needed in everyday life.
