Two-storeyed Building of the Barracks of the Corps of Engineers
The barracks of the Corps of Engineers were built on the place of one of the Sviyazhsk squares in the early 20th century, simultaneously with the beginning of the construction of the Romanovsky railway bridge cross the Volga. The two-storeyed building accommodated various administrative offices, and the one-storeyed building was used as a dwelling house. At the Soviet period, the two-storeyed building housed a village hall with a cinema projector and a library. After the fire at the late 20th century, only the walls of the building survived. The building was restored and adapted for using it as a depository of the GBUK State Historical, Architectural, and Art Museum “Island Town of Sviyazhsk” and was provided with all relevant utilities.
