A part of the area of the closed Wall-paper Factory with a stone barrack for workers, belonged to the Banknote Factory since 1780, was given for building a public almshouse according to the Emperor’s order in 1859. The project of converting the barrack into the almshouse with a domestic church was developed by I.A. Monighetti. The construction was directed by A.F. Vidov in 1863-1865, but then building was stopped in connection with the money problems. In 1869 according to the Emperor’s order the building was allowed to rebuilt as a man gymnasium. The gymnasium was named after Emperor Nicholas Pavlovich and in the memory of dead Tsesarevich Nicholas Alexandrovich, the inscription on the memorial plaque placed on the façade informed about it. The solemn ceremony of the opening of the Gymnasium took place in the presence of Alexander II and august persons on 8 September 1870 in the Town Council hall. The Gymnasium became famous for its teachers and pupils, among which there was the poet I.F. Annensky who headed the gymnasium and lived here since 1896 until 1905. N.N. Gumilyev, V.A. Komarovsky, V.A. Rozhdestvensky, N.N. Punin and many others were among pupils of the gymnasium.
