Sterdyń, a small settlement located on the Siedlce Upland near Buczynka river - the left tributary of the Bug river, for  years after war hid a real treasure. The first attempts to rebuild the palace were taken by the Polish Composers' Union and the Association of Cultural Animators. In 1996, thanks to attempts of people gathered around Jan Pacewicz, a thorough reconstruction of the old Ossolinski palace started. Today the restored palace reminds the good times of Sterdyń – times it was in possession of one of most wealthy aristocratic families of the Republic of Poland of the seventeenth century.

In 1809, his daughter Emilia married Józef Wawrzyniec Krasinski from Ślepowron crest. Among the residents of the house of Krasinscy family was well known and respected architect Jakub Kubicki. The reconstruction of the Sterdyń palace was commissioned to him. In 1847, after the death of Józef Wawrzyniec Krasinski, the sole owner of Sterdyń became Paulina z Krasińskich, wife of Ludwik Górski from Bożawola crest.
