Halbstadt (now Pólmiescie, Poland) Source: Wikipedia Commons

Halbstadt (also known as Albsztat and Pulmiasta; now known as Półmieście; coordinates: 54.098563, 19.152774 [54° 5′ 54″ N, 19° 9′ 9″ E]; population in 1905, 277; in 2006, 50), is located approximately 10 kilometers (6 miles) south-east of Nowy Staw (Neuteich), 11 km. (7 mi.) north-east of Malbork (Marienburg), and 45 km. (28 mi.) south-east of Gdansk (Danzig).

Until 1772 Halbstadt was part of the Kingdom of Poland. The First Partition of Poland in 1772 resulted in the creation of a new province in 1773, called West Prussia, in which Halbstadt was located. Halbstadt was situated in the district (Kreis) of Marienburg until the establishment of the Free City of Danzig in 1920. 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. In 2012 Halbstadt (now Półmieście) was a village in the administrative district of Gmina Nowy Staw, within Malbork County, Pomeranian Voivodeship, in northern Poland.

The 1776 Prussian census lists 13 Mennonite families in Halbstadt with the following surnames: Claasen, Conrad, Dick, Isaac, Kroecker, Loewen, Mertins, Reimer, Toews, Wall, Warkentin, Wiens, and Willer. In 1820 there were 186 inhabitants in the village including 64 Mennonites.

Mennonites who were residents of Halbstadt were members of the Heubuden Mennonite Church.
