This building is one of the oldest in Ivanovo. It was built in the 17th century. The oldest stone structure was one of the first in Ivanovo. Its first owners, the Cherkassky princes, used it as the office. There, in a small room, their estate steward used to work. The last owner, merchant Osip Shchudrov, gave his name to this memorial. Osip converted it into the workshop. The richly decorated facade of the building overlooks the modern street. The windows are decorated with carved frames.
