History of the city of Marki:
The city of Marki is located near the capital, located on the way from Warsaw to Bialystok. A few decades ago it was one of the most modern industrial centers of the textile industry. The beginning of today's city dates back to the end of the 16th century, when, most likely around 1580, a village was founded on land that belonged to the Warsaw headman.
Archaeological research shows that the settlement on the territory of the present Mark dates back to prehistoric times. Excavations have led to found on the street. Galler flint tools dating back to the 5th millennium BC. (The Komornice culture is the earliest known culture in Poland, developing during the Mesolithic period). From later periods, fragments of pottery of the Bronze Age, the remains of a settlement of the 1st and 2nd centuries AD were found. and an oak-trunk well dating from the 10th century.
At the end of the 16th century, 2 plots of land (about 34 hectares) were transferred from the royal estate to the Markov (Markovich) family, from which the name of the village originated. Soon, Jan and Wojciech Markovic also received the royal privilege of owning a mill on the Dluga River, and the inhabitants were mainly engaged in agriculture.
The wars of the following centuries (including the Swedish Flood, the Third Northern War) repeatedly led to destruction in Marka and its environs, as well as to the death of many inhabitants of that time.
Calendar of events for this period:
1565 - the oldest mention of the Dluga River and the mills built on it.
1601 - the oldest written information about the village of Marki in a document signed by Sigismund III Vasa.
1650 – Marek has about 40 inhabitants.
1656 - the destruction of Marek during the three-day battle for Warsaw.
1765 is the oldest description of an inn in Marks.
1794 - participation of the Markovites in the Kosciuszko uprising.
In the 19th century (initially under the Prussian partition and as part of the Duchy of Warsaw, and after 1815 under the Russian partition) the process of gradual transformation of Marek into an industrial settlement began. In 1833-1835, the road leading through the Marks was widened and paved, and the inhabitants began to engage in crafts (shoemaking, weaving). Due to the presence of clay resources, the production of bricks has also acquired great importance. However, a more intensive development of brands became possible only after 1850, when companies from Poland gained access to the Russian market.
Using cheap local labor, Warsaw entrepreneurs began to supply the peasants with raw materials and tools. In a short time, the inhabitants of Marek became famous as good professionals. However, only in the last twenty years of the 19th century Marks began to develop rapidly, large-scale industry appeared in the city.
Calendar of events for this period:

In 1883, the land, previously owned by a joint-stock company called Folwark i cegielnia wójtostwa Marki, was bought by English entrepreneurs from the industrial city of Bradford - the brothers Edward, Alfred and John Briggs. In 1884, Briggs, Posselt & Company launched one of the largest and most modern woolen spinning mills in Central and Eastern Europe at that time in Marki, producing mainly for the Russian market.
Thus, it was possible to eliminate the customs barrier established by Russia and, thereby, protect itself from foreign competition.
Above the entire building of the spinning factory, which has survived to this day, there was an almost 50-meter pipe, as well as apartment buildings in which the workers lived. The Briggs brothers also built a working housing estate and a primary school building in Marky - currently the Marecki Cultural Center is located here. At the factory in Marki, for the first time in the Kingdom of Poland, the production of worsted woolen yarn was launched, the raw materials for which were imported from Australia, Argentina and southern Russia. The materials needed for production were delivered to the factories by the railway, opened in 1897 and connecting Warsaw with Drewnitsa, Zonbki, Marky and Pustelnik, where numerous brick factories operated.
The Kingdom of Poland has become a very attractive place for the activities of European agricultural enterprises. The location provided convenient conditions for the transportation of industrial goods and contributed to the further development of the village. At the end of the 19th century, Marks had about 10,000 inhabitants and was one of the most powerful industrial centers of the Kingdom.
The First World War slowed down economic development and devastated the machine park. In 1916-1918 the Marks were under German occupation. The plant was rebuilt, but cut off from the absorbing eastern market, production was limited.
Marki, along with Radzymin, Ossow and other cities near Warsaw, played an important role in the Battle of Warsaw during the Polish-Russian War. Although there was no fighting in the Marches themselves, the centers of decision-making were located here.
