The current Residence was erected on the location where once stood a hunting castle of the Habsburg family, built at the beginning of the 20th century. After the year 1918, the proprietor of the castle in Zadni Groń became the Ministry of Agriculture in Warsaw. In November 1927, the Silesian Voivodeship Council passed the decision to renovate the former Habsburgs’ seat and to designate it for representative purposes of the President Ignacy Mościcki. At night of 23rd and 24th December 1927, in unclear circumstances, the newly renovated building burned to the ground. However, in Zadni Groń, above the Castle, a wooden church dating back to the year 1909 was preserved.
In the years 1928-1931, at the area of the estate buildings of the Habsburg family castle, a new, this time brick-made residence of the Presidents of the Republic of Poland was erected, being the gift of the Silesian Voivodeship to the President Ignacy Mościcki.The main originator of the project of the residence was the Silesian Voivode Michał Grażyński.The project, including the costs estimation, was prepared free of charge by ProfessorAdolf Szyszko-Bohusz with the cooperation of Andrzej Pronaszka and Włodzimierz Padlewski.Since October 1929, conceptual works were carried out regarding the ancillary building, which was supposed to accommodate rooms for civil, military and police staff, a canteen, kitchen, flatwork ironers, garage and stables, as well as a telephone exchange.On January 15, 1931, the Residence was finally commissioned and handed over to the Civil Chancellery of the President.Ignacy Mościcki for the first time came to the Castle in Wisła on January 21, 1931.Since then he visited the Castle regularly, at least twice a year.In the 1930s, the Castle of the President of the Republic of Poland in Wisła served as a representative building for the highest officials of the Polish government.Nowadays, it is protected as the National Heritage Complex, based on an entry to the Register of Historic Monuments (pursuant to the decision of June 7, 1994).
