Architecture Monument Burned Down in Vologda

A unique house which was about to become a monument of the Vologda wooden architecture was burned down in Vologda.

      It happened in the centre of the regional capital city last Sunday, October 5.

      It was the so-called Ogurechnikov House in Batyushkov Street. This construction of 1902 was the only remaining house in Vologda that had its roof shape over the entrance staircase to the second floor characteristic typical of Arkhangelsk architecture.

      A year ago this house was close to demolition, but at the beginning of this year the Culture Department allotted money for carrying out historical and cultural expert evaluation to recognize this building a monument of the Vologda wooden architecture.

      Unfortunately, the building was burned down within just a few minutes and firefighters failed to save it. The causes of the fire are being clarified.
