Local history

Tomasz Kawski

The oldest record of Ożarowo dates back to 1414. It was a princely village, and later on, a royal one. Since the end of the 16th century, Ożarowo was the lease of, and a source of financial income for, the Warsaw Starosts (elders). In 1821, there were 32 houses and 257 people in the village.

Ożarowo’s development was initated with the setting up of a glasshouse (1901) and station of the Warsaw-Kalisz railway (1903) in the neighboring village of Franciszków. In the Interwar Period (1918 – 1939), 450 people were employed in the glasshouse. In 1926, a cable factory was built near the railway.

In September 1939, there was fierce fighting between the Polish and German armies in the neighborhood of Ożarów, resulting in the deaths of 1000 soldiers. In 1944, after the collapse of the Uprising, the surrender of Warsaw was signed in Ożarów.

After World War II, the settlement’s population grew significantly, in part due to its proximity to Warsaw. In 1957 Ożarów and Franciszków joined, forming the Ożarów-Franciszków housing estate. In 1961, Ołarzewo and Kolonia were merged. In 1967, the settlement was granted a town charter and its name was changed to Ożarów Mazowiecki. Nowadays, the town is an industrial centre Geographic and administrative location
