Fritzow - Wrzosowo

Fritzow was the origin of my TRETTIN ancestors in the mid-1700's, and it was a bit of a disappointment.  North and east of the town factories and large apartment blocks have been built, the access to the shore is blocked, and the village sits right on a major highway.  That all means that little of the old Fritzow is left.  Here's what I was able to find:

This road once led to the shore, but it's now fenced off at the west end.

A small duck pond in the center of town. I was standing next to the tiny firehouse, built in 1925, but my picture of that did not come out.

A Polish war memorial made of carved concrete.  This is where the old German church stood.

The new Roman Catholic church.  It's down the road to the east of where the old German church stood.  I couldn't find the location of the old cemetery (or the new one, either).
