Historical and contemporary curiosities of Sova´Mills

Curiosities related to the name of the mill .Just like the other noted landmarks even this mill had changed its name frequently. It was happening due to frequent changes of its owners who were coming and leaving again. So we learn from the historical sources that the mill was called Sovovský at the end of the 15th century, then it was renamed Severínovký, further Kosořský. Later it returned to the original name Sovovský and from 1850 it was noted as Odkolkovký Mill. » More »
