Several merchant houses have been preserved in Temnikov. Not far from the Ushakov Museum is a former merchant house that was built in 1731. The building is believed to be the town’s first stone structure. At the start of Kommunisticheskaya Street, house number one has preserved the remains of a merchant shop that was built in the late 1880s. Near it, at number 5, is another heritage site, the estate of the merchant Smirnov which was also built in the early nineteenth century. A long time ago this place was called Bazaar Square. There are other heritage buildings in the town, in particular the Municipal Administration building and the district training school building.
