In 1771, a new wooden church was built at the expense of the landowner Guscha. In 1866, a 2-class parochial school was opened.
In 1869, a church was built of rubble stone, an architectural monument of pseudo-Russian style. In 1897, the village belonged to the Volozhin volost of the Oshmyansky district of the Vilna province of the Russian Empire. Since 1921, it is under the rule of Poland, since November 1939 – it is a part of the BSSR. During the Great Patriotic War, from June 25, 1941 to July 5, 1944, it was occupied by Nazi invaders.
