The article presents the history of the palace located in the Dembiński family estate. It was a noble family which lived mainly in the Małopolska region and had significant estates there. Rusinów became Dembiński’s property in the first half of the 18th century and passed on from generation to generation for another century. The source included in this publication describes the palace, whose founder was Urszula Dembińska, nee Morsz-tyn, the wife of Franciszek Dembiński. The register shows the furnishings of the pal-ace, the kitchen annex and the chapel of the mansion, which fulfilled in its assumptions the function of autumn and winter residence.
