Main House of Kashkin Manor

It is believed that the manor was designed by the great Russian architect Matvey Kazakov. The Neoclassical manor was built for the governor of Perm and Tobolsk Yevgeny Kashkin. In the late 19th century, the manor's annex was rebuilt in accordance with the designs of August Weber, and later became a free-standing house. In the 1950s, the building was built higher and tiled, loosing its original look. In Soviet times, it housed the editorial offices of Working Moscow and Evening Moscow newspapers, the Moscow Worker publishing house, and the editorial office of the Kuranty almonach.
