At the end of 17th century with the financial help of Potocki family the Dominican order was established. It is thought that it was then that the friars built a huge defensive church under the call of Saint Apostles Peter and Paul, which was consecrated by the Archbishop Jan Skarbek in 1730.

In 1722 Przemyślany was still a small provincial town. In the middle of 19th century there were 372 households and 3 000 inhabitants. Alfred Potocki was the main landowner in Przemyślany – he owned 647 hectares. Since 1860 the town has been a county centre. At the end of 19th century there was one Polish school and one private bee-keeping school. In 1909 a railway station Lwow - Potutory (Podhajce) was built, which had a positive impact on the town’s economy. Przemyślany became one of the wood delivery centres.
