Akinchytsy Memorial Estate

Akinchitsy is a memorial estate. Initially a torture-chamber, later a village. By the decision of the Minsk Regional Executive Committee in 1977, it was included in the boundaries of the city of Stolbtsy.

The name comes from the surname of the gentry Akinchits, who received the torture-chamber as a gift from Prince Radzivil.

Akinchitsy is the first place of service of Michal Mickiewicz, the father of Yakub Kolas, who lived there with his family from April 1, 1881 to April 1, 1883.

In 1982, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Yakub Kolas's birth, according to archival documents, the estate and the hut covered with shingles with three windows, a barn with a stable under a thatched roof were restored; a well with a crane, a pantry, a rectangular fence made of pine blocks. There, near the pantry, you can see the former road, called the Catherine's tract. The interior of the Akinchitsy chamber was restored according to the recollections of Yakub Kolas's relatives and local residents.

On October 30, 1982, the memorial estate received its first visitors. Among the exhibits are analogues of objects used by the Mickiewicz family, objects of peasant life at the end of the 19th century.
