The horse stable of Semenets-Galsky Estate in Khmelyovo, Parfinsky District, will be put up for sale soon as part of the priority regional project Cultural Heritage in Good Hands according to a report by the Novgorod Region Ministry of Construction, Architecture and Property.
The history of the estate is connected with the founders of the German company Siemens & Halske, which laid the first telegraph lines across the globe. In 1861, the company owners acquired Khmelyovo-Gorodok estate and built a porcelain factory there. It produced electrical isolators and decorative tableware from local white clay. The Siemens plant operated until 1914.
The estate built next to the plant bearing the Russian-styled name Semenets -Galsky Estate was celebrated for its splendour. It was located right on the bank of the Lovat River with marble stairs leading from the bank to the two-story stone mansion. There was a park around the mansion and a large stone horse stable which is listed for sale. Following the 1917 Revolution, Khmelyovo-Gorodok estate was nationalised in October 1918 to house a juvenile correctional facility.
