HISTORY

The terrains of Slupno Commune have always been very attractive for settlers. The first records about Slupno are from the 12th century but probably settlers came here already in the 6th century.
The Second World War was not the best period in the history of Slupno Commune. From 28 November 1940 till 1941 Archbishop Antoni Julian Nowowiejski and Bishop Leon Wetmanski were imprisoned here and later were sent to Soldau (KL) labour camp in Dzialdowo, where they both died. In April 1942, on the other hand, Germans murdered 25 citizens of Slupno and neighbouring villages.
After the war the industrialisation of Plock began. Large refinery-petrochemical works were built and in the neighbourhood of Cekanowo PERN Przyjazn company, the storage of crude oil, was erected.
