City Treasury Building (Fund for work with children and youth "Nadezhda")

An example of civil architecture of the late XIX – early XX century. Demonstrates the level of construction equipment in the Northern regions of the republic.

Construction of the building began in 1912. There is no detailed information about this, but presumably the construction was completed by 1913, perhaps finishing work was also carried out in 1913. Until 1918, the building housed the city Treasury, after the city pharmacy No. 1.

During the Great Patriotic War, the collections of the State Historical Museum were housed in Kostanay. Some of them were stored in the basement of the pharmacy (city treasury).

The reconstruction and losses that changed the original appearance of the monument are insignificant.
