LELYUKHIV

St. Demetrius, the Great Martyr

1861

Lelyukhiv is the most southerly settlement in western Lemkivshchyna. The countryside is rather hilly, and the soil not very fertile. It is no wonder then, that by 1909, 250 inhabitants out of 790 traveled to North America as settlers or as laborers. The tserkva is used by the Poles as a kostel. LELYUKHIV
