The orphanage was located in the village of Ivakino after Rakhmanov’s mansion was nationalized. In 1978-79, the mansion burned down and the orphanage ceased to exist. The orphanage is repeatedly mentioned in police documents about children who escaped. In January and February 1944, five pupils escaped from the Rakhmanovskii Orphanage.
