The mansion was built in 1875 according to the architect Chichagov's project and was used as the main house of the 19th century estate. The architectural monument with a rich history belonged in different times to the Turgenevs, Dolgorukovs and Vadkovskys. In 1822-1830, the Russian military leader Alekseev, a participant in the capture of Izmail, a hero of the Russian-Finnish War of 1808 and the Patriotic War of 1812, lived in this house. After the death of Alekseev, in 1831-1832, Sergey Turgenev rented the house. Fourteen-year-old Ivan Turgenev lived there with his parents, preparing to enter the university. The Decembrist Vadkovsky also lived there until the 1840s.
