  • The parish of the village's Greek-Catholic church, St. Demetrius the Great Martyr, was established in 1612. Parishioners from Folusz, Cieklin and Jaslo also attended St. Demetrius. The wooden church, built in 1776 and renovated in 1903, was destroyed following the 1945-1947 Lemko deportations. A drawing of St. Demetrius is included in Oleh Iwaniuw's book, Church in Ruins. The cemetery, on a wooded hilltop, remains.

    There is a sad tale of peasant revolt and revenge in Wola Cieklinska following the threatened loss of village forests on the "Bald Mountain" website (www.home.swipnet.se/roland/maryintro.html). Go to the introduction and click on Vola Ceklynska for this 1846 "historical recollection."

    There were three World War I military cemeteries constructed in the village--memorials of the great loss of life in nearby battles. One is pictured elsewhere on this site.
