The name of the village appears as early as 1409 during the trial of Jan, Rawa coat of arms, with the Benedictine monastery. Then the property of said Jan was called Snopcov . The settlement, thanks to its very convenient location near the often frequented road from Rus to Mazowsze and the immediate vicinity of Lublin, developed very well, peasants from Snopka were often found at Lublin fairs, and the richest lent money to Lublin townspeople. Over the years, the town becomes the property of several families, incl. Ożarowski, who later used the name Snopkowski. An interesting fact is undoubtedly the fact that the grandmother of King Jan III Sobieski was Jadwiga née Snopkowska. The estate flourished in the second half of the nineteenth century, when Antoni Borowski founded a horse farm known throughout the country. Thanks to his efforts in Sheaves modern farm buildings and a new palace with carefully designed landscape park surroundings were built. Currently, the palace is in private hands.
