In Neuhof, 269 residents voted to remain with East Prussia, Poland did not receive any votes.

In 2011 Nowy Dwór had 310 inhabitants.


In 1898 Nowy Dwór became a separate church and built a church in 1901/02. It is a red brick building, the simple interior of which had a carved and richly decorated pulpit altar from the beginning of the 17th century. The church was a Protestant house of worship until 1945, but after 1945 it was rededicated as a Catholic parish church.

Until 1945 Neuhof belonged to the church province of East Prussia of the Church of the Old Prussian Union . Nowy Dwór is included in the Evangelical Jedwabno in the Masurian Diocese of the Evangelical-Augsburg Church in Poland .
