The History of Selivanov house

The house of one of the richest citizens of Rostov in the beginning of the XX century of Pavel Aleksandrovich Selivanov, located at the beginning of Okruzhnoy Street, 5, belongs to the best samples of modernist style in the city. It would seem, that it is not so difficult to guess the time when the construction of the building was built - it is the beginning of the XX century. However, as the archival documents showed, the house has a much longer and more difficult construction history. This house belongs to one of the oldest civil buildings of the city. Most likely, it was constructed in the 80th of the XVIII century. At the very end of the XVIII century this house was owned by the titular counselor Prokofy Larionov.

In Soviet period the building lost its initial rich decoration of the interiors, the big rooms on the second floor were divided into a number of small communal flats. The magnificent stained-glass windows, tile fireplaces, door handles, etc., still partially remaining till the 1970-1980th were lost. However the external shape of the building nevertheless still keeps the main lines which were given to it in 1909.

So, Selivanov house which has reached our days consists of four main parts which were built at different times.
