A colony for deaf and mute children at the Novyi Ierusalim Station is mentioned in the list of colonies and orphanages for handicapped children no later than 1928. They belonged to the administration of MONO (Moscow Department of National Education). It was possibly located on the "Sokolniki" farm.
