The first Protestants settled in the area of
today's Siemianowice Śląskie in the
nineteenth century. It was mostly a Germanspeaking population, which was attracted
here by a dynamic industrial development of
the area. In the years 1893-1895, they
erected the church of Martin Luther in
Siemianowice Śląskie. It was decorated in the
neo-Gothic style. In 1945, it was taken over
by the Catholic church, but after 55 years, it
was returned to the Evangelicals.
In the center of Siemianowice Śląskie, in the municipal park, there are impressive buildings of the palace, whose oldest part was erected by the Mieroszewscy family as early as the seventeenth century. In the following centuries, the palace was expanded by members of the Henckel von Donnersmarck family of the Bytom-Siemianowice line. At present, the residence, which is in a very poor state of preservation, is partly in the Baroque-Classicist style and partly in the Eclectic style. There are historic outbuildings adjacent to the palace.
