The Lower stables with a fodder yard, fences and a wing with dwelling flats for stablemen were built in 1756-1762 to the design of F.-B. Rastrelli and under the direction of S.I. Chevakinsky. The Baroque style facades held their splendid appearance. In the main building of the U-shaped complex of three building firstly there were stables for two hundred horses and carriage sheds for the court coaches. The old one-storied stone house of the clothes attendant Chulkov was enlarged and rebuilt for flats of a non-commissioned Master of the Horse and riding-master. In 1770 according to the design and estimate of the architect V.I. Neyelov the new building was constructed which formed the complex like a square. Under Emperor Paul the Hussar Stables were placed here. By the middle of the 19th century the building became dilapidated. More then one inner reconstructions were made by architects P.S. Sadovnikov, A.F. Vidov who built a carriage shed in the yard centre. In 1911 expositions of the agriculture and fire department, the Society of Trusteeship about Sobriety of the Tsarskoye Selo Jubilee exhibition were placed here. After 1917 the Stables were used by The Detskoye Selo department of the Leningrad Agriculture Institute. In the 1930s here there was a mechanical depot, later – the repair and engineering works of Lenobldortrans of the People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs. From 1944 until 1947 here there was a prisoner-of-war camp. Then the building was restored and adapted for a improved hostel and sanatorium of the Agriculture Institute (now it is the Saint Petersburg Agrarian University). Works were done in 1947-1959 according to the design of the architect T.M. Belorusova (planning and restoring workshop No.3 of the State Institute of the Protection of Monuments).
