"History of a House - History of a Family" Exhibition in Krapivna

20-1March 30 – May 25, 2013

Local History Museum of Krapivna

This exhibition will tell you about the most well-known merchant families of Krapivna and the old houses in which those people lived and which have been preserved in the former town.

The word “house” is always associated with a “home”, with people living together, with a family. The family houses that belonged to several local families went down in the history of Krpaivna due to the people who used to live in them. Those were representatives of the Astafyev, Tolstikov, Zinoviev, Vorobyov, Saburov, Youdin, Polyakov, and Pryanchikov families. Most of them lived and worked in Krapivna all their lives; but some of them leaved their home town, and their lives often turned out to be interesting and happy and sometimes even dramatic. Our museum has a lot of information about those people due to their descendants now living both in Krapivna and in other towns and cities.

__Visitors to our new exhibition can learn many interesting facts about heirs of most prominent local merchant families. For example, one of them – Peter Zinoviev, son of the merchant Mikhail Zinoviev – became a psychiatrist, and he also was a doctor of Sergey Yesenin, a famous poet of the Silver Age of Russian poetry. Zinoviev’s eldest daughter was the wife of Ivan Pribludny – also a poet and Yesenin’s friend. And a tragic and romantic story of Mikhail Saburov’s marriage has long since been one of the popular local legends.
