The Bugrovs’ Poorhouse in Rogozhskaya settlement is to be restored. The Moscow Cultural Heritage Department has issued a project development assignment.

“The two-story stone building of the Rogozhskaya Old Believer Community poorhouse is of great importance for the quarter's architecture. The front facade is made in Russian Revival style, and the rear one has a small curved pediment and a roof window. For a quality restoration, the right holder is to develop a detailed project of the works to be done and submit it to the Department,” said Head of the Department Alexei Yemelyanov.

First, the experts will study the building's engineering and technical features, conduct historical, archival and bibliographic studies. The project must include a list of fire services, as well as other sections provided for by the law. After the restoration project is developed and approved, the Moscow Cultural Heritage Department will issue a work permit.

The Bugrovs’ Poorhouse is an object of cultural heritage of regional significance. It was built in the latter half of the 19th century as part of the Rogozhskaya Old Believers Community and funded by the merchant Nikolai Bugrov.
