The History of Mysovo Manor.

The etymology of the manor’s name comes from its geographical location. It is located on a cape, which juts into the Klyazma impoundment. In previous times, Klyazma River washed this cape (“mys” – in Russian) and, instead of the impoundment, there were meadows. The first known mention of Mysovo (in those times – a small village) is related to the XVI century.

The Main two-storey house, which was built in the XIX century, is situated on a high, steep shore. The first storey is made of bricks, the second – of timber. The last owners painted it white. There also was a park around the Main house.

Considered, that the stable was built later, in the beginning of the XX century, by the family of the philanthropist, the hereditary honorary citizen Alexander G. Kuznetsov. After the Revolution, they emigrated to France, where their descendants are still living.

From the once vast manor survived:

1)    The Main house (the end of the XIX century);

2)    The Stable yard (the beginning of the XX century);

3)    The Household building (the beginning of the XX century);

4)    Two wooden houses (the beginning of the XX century; they are hidden behind a fence);

5)    Remains of the park.

In Kuznetsovs’ times, there were 40 horses on the Stable yard. They walked in the arena. The southern part of the stable was built a few years later than the first building. The last detailed documentary description of the stable was made in 1985 and was preserved in the Passport of the Stable yard of the Mysovo manor. In Soviet times, there was a Sanitary and Epidemiological Station, and later there were food warehouses.

There also was a hippodrome and an observation platform, where horseracing could be seen. There was a hospital for horses beside and on the first floor there was grooms’ apartment. The roof of the stable was covered with red tiles. The favorite horse of the landlady was called “Opal”. Even as a foal, it was moved from France. In the left wing of the stable there was the “Museum of Harness”, and in the left lived a jockey, Thomas Smith, with his family.

Now, the stable building is in a ruined condition and needs rebuilding. The Main house also requires restoration.
