Alexander Porokhovshchikov house

At the end of the 20th century, the building turned into a shelter for city vagrants and was in disrepair. In 1995, the house was rented for 49 years by actor Alexander Porokhovshchikov, the great-grandson of the first owner. He restored the interior of the main floor of the building, restored the fireplace once created by Mikhail Vrubel, and was going to open a cultural center here. But illness and death prevented the dreams of the great actor from coming true.

This house is surrounded by mystical stories. Here the young wife of the first owner died mysteriously. And this is where his great-grandson's wife hanged herself. The girls who worked in the house say that they repeatedly watched the ghost of a little girl here. And before Alexander Porokhovshchikov was taken to the intensive care unit, the floor in the building suddenly became moldy. The housekeepers decided that the house required a victim. Irina Porokhovshchikova shortly before the suicide said: “This house takes everyone. But I can't get out of it, I'm drawn here!” Her mother died in this house too.

Since 2013, the house has remained in the ownership of the city, it is locked and guarded by a private agency. There are talks about its restoration and opening in the museum building, but so far investors and tenants are in no hurry to invest in the restoration of this mansion.
