Church in honor of the Nativity of Holy Virgin, the Mother of God, in Baryatino

Church 2009

Our church was built in the 18th century on the means of  a landowning lady Anna Poznyakova. The note on the northern wall inside the church says: “A general-mayor’s  widow Anna  Poznyakova whose ash is under this stone,  having got a seventh part  of the husband’s  income, has finished the construction of the church and  sanctified this church in honor of  the Nativity of Holy Virgin, the Mother of God, and after her death has inherited this village to her dear brother, State Councellor Matvey Olsufiev” . There is a note saying the year of sanctification of the church in the book of count de Roshefer – ”The List of Kaluga’s Church Monuments”,  page 32. The book was published in St. Petersburg, 1882.
