On the right bank of the Ondava River to the south of Svidník there stands a hill called Kaštielik, which once had a castle or fortified residence. According to archaeological research, the fortified construction could be as old as from the 15th century. In the autumn of 1944, Kaštielik was the site of heavy fighting during the Dukla Offensive. Traces of trenches from World War I can be found here too. Nowadays the hill is covered with open oak and beech woodland.

Radymno was already famous for its ropemakers in the 16th century. The local craftsmen would later supply ropes to the royal fleet of King Władysław IV. The first National Ropemaker Association was created in 1884 in Radymno. Products such as: lines, ropes, halters, twine, tennis and volleyball nets, fishing nets, nets for train shelves, hunting nets, hammocks, belts and runners were manufactured mostly from hemp. The Association would also provide products by special order of the Polish Government for the military.

Until the mid-19th century, the town architecture was almost entirely wooden. In 1849, there were only three homes made of stone in the square. The oldest single-storey homes in the square have a continuation – these are homes under the numbers: 3, 21, 28, 29, 30. They were mostly three-axis homes with a hall inside or on the side axis. At the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries, multi-storey tenements began appearing. In most cases, their architecture has an eclectic character. The corner homes with two facades, no. 2, 12, 14, and 15, are the most representative ones.

Located right by the parish church, the former organist’s house is part of the parish complex. It was built in 1890 using log construction, featuring a high stone-and-brick underpinning. The organist’s house was designed on a rectangle with the dimensions of 6.20 x 7.50 m. The western part had a room and an alcove, while the eastern one had a wide hall with no divisions. The log ceiling bore the words: “And the word became flesh and dwelt here among us A.D. 1890”. After it ceased to perform its original role, the building was used for storing tools necessary for church maintenance. In 1994, at the initiative of the parish priest, Fr. Kazimierz Trelka, the Parish Museum was established in the house. It displays such exhibits as household tools, manuscripts, books and documents donated by locals. Some elements of the collection were sought and secured by the parish priest himself. The numerous historical exhibits collected so far presents the history of Pruchnik and its inhabitants. The museum has two rooms. The first one is intended for old furnishings and documents related to Pruchnik and the surrounding area, while the other one is dedicated to the memory of Fr. Bronisław Makiewicz. The parish complex also includes the parish house from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, still in active use, as well as a granary from the early 20th century.
