In Częstochowa, at Krakowska Street, there is an eclectic small palace, built in 1909. It is the former palace of Jean Motte, co-owner of a French textile factory. The usual practice of nineteenth-century entrepreneurs was to erect their residences near the company, which was from their own, but more frequently from borrowed funds. Before the First World War, the Polish Kingdom, including Częstochowa, actively participated in the development of the Russian economy.
