In 1764, Empress Catherine II issued a Manifesto about land and serfsuptake from the monastic property to the state treasury. (By this time the churches in Russia had in their possession more than hine million hectares of land and more than nine hundred thousand male peasant). After the Manifesto issuing almost all the monastic servants, as people who were educated and experienced in administration affairs and clerical service, became government officials and left the Troitsky slobods. The emptied out Sloboda was taken over by citizens of Sergiev Posad, that was founded in 1782.
At that time there were buildings belonging to the bourgeois Vereshchagin and the Moscow merchant Petrov there. According to the plan redevelopment , a priest and a sexton of the Pyatnitskaya Church were to move into their houses. To do this, they had to pay the owners a ransom for their real estate in august 1797.
