The Petrovsky monastery was rather rich. In 1678 it possessed 519, and in 1700-m - 612 country court yards. In the middle of XVIII-th the monastery had 5998 souls of the peasants. It assigned Lgov monastery near Rilsk and Medvizhia Pustin near Dmitrov. In the beginning of XX-th in the monastery lived archimandrite and 14 monks.

There were placed different spiritual and religious establishments in a monastery for a long time: in 1771 during a plague - a quarantine, from 1770 for 1903 - spiritual censorial committee, the library of the Moscow company of the amateurs of spiritual education.
The restoration of the monastery began in 1950. Its buildings were surrendered with different cultural establishments, including the Literary museum.

I advise to look at my tip Literary Museum.
