The First Partition of Poland in 1772 resulted in the creation of a new province in 1773, called West Prussia, in which Zwanzigerweide was located. Zwanzigerweide was situated in the district (Kreis) of Stuhm until the end of World War I, when it came under the jurisdiction of the German province of East Prussia. In 1928 the villages of Tragheimerweide, Zwanzigerweide, and Schweingrube were combined into one political unit. The village came under the control of Nazi Germany during World War II until February 1945, when it was occupied by Soviet forces and returned to Poland.
The 1776 Prussian census lists six Mennonite families in Zwanzigerweide with the following surnames: Abrahams, Becher, Eggert, Goertz, Nickel, and Penner.
Mennonites who were residents of Zwanzigerweide were members of the Tragheimerweide Mennonite Church.
