About object

This gorgeous 1910 mansion in the city centre stands out from the rest of local architecture. The house belonged to merchant Ivan Kurzhenkov, the son of Pavel Kurzhenkov. After the Revolution, Ivan and his family moved to Petrograd, where they lived on Sadovaya Street for some time. When that home was also taken from them, the family moved into a small flat on Gorokhovaya Street. Ivan Kurzhenkov, his wife and daughter died of starvation during the Siege of Leningrad. Their son, Georgy, fought on the fronts of the Great Patriotic War but later died in an accident, ending the Kurzhenkov line.

In July 1919, after glassware factories had been seized from their owners, a district executive committee took over the Kurzhenkov mansion. In 1970, a spacious two-floor annex was built on the north-western side overlooking the courtyard. The building is currently used as an office of the local administration.
