Gorky street runs along Pervomayskiy public garden. There are sever-al curious examples of Novosibirsk wooden architecture in the street.
On the side of Pervomayskiy public garden you can see multistorey stone houses, which were erected at the beginning of the 20 century and are also included in the architectural heritage of Novosibirsk. A good example is a two-floor house #40. Its lower floor is of stone and its upper floor is of wood.
The house was built in 1905 and belonged to Euphrosyne Verkhovaya. It was one of the first tenement houses of Novosibirsk. It was built in the style of eclecticism.
Further on there are three adjoining house, (#16, 18, and 20) which can be rightly considered examples of wooden architecture. The house #16 is now occupied by the Museum of the USSR and the Museum of Siberian Birch Bark. Previously, it was a residential house of M. N. Kulikov. The house #18 was the property of Ali Fayzukhanov in 1914.
