Address: Svobody St, 8 (originally Veterinarna St, in 1927-2016 Artema St)

In 1909 this yard place belonged to Ivan Mykolaevich Maslovsky, he was a retired lieutenant of the fleet. A historian Alexander Leibfreid said that the architect Moisei Lazarevich Meletinsky was the author of this project, but the exact years of construction are unknown (most likely 1911). The entrance has recently been renovated and it сould be called one of the best in the city. The Art Nouveau house was an architectural monument.
