The house of the merchant family Strukov is one of the few remaining old houses in Pushkino. Even the interior has been preserved, and there is an original hall with a homemade scene. After the house was nationalized, an orphanage was opened there. It became part of the Pushkino Children’s Community Village. The writer Konstantin Paustovskii lived there in the 1920s.
