Klein Heubuden (also known as Goldschaar Heubuden; now known as Stożki; coordinates: 54.0927, 18.9532 [54° 5′ 33″ N, 18° 57′ 11″ E]; population in 1905, 13) is located approximately 9 kilometres (6 miles) north-west of Malbork (Marienburg), 17 km. (11 mi.) south-west of Nowy Dwór Gdański (Tiegenhof), and 37 km. (23 mi.) south-east of the regional capital Gdańsk (Danzig).
Until 1772 Klein Heubuden was located in what was known as Royal Prussia (also known as Polish Prussia) in 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 Klein Heubuden was located. Klein Heubuden 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 Klein Heubuden (now Stożki) was a settlement in the administrative district of Gmina Lichnowy, within Malbork County, Pomeranian Voivodeship.
The Prussian census of 1776 lists one Mennonite family by the name of Penner in Klein Heubuden.
Mennonites who were residents of Klein Heubuden were members of the Heubuden Mennonite Church.
