The characteristic property of this two-storey building is a sad female face sculptured on the facade. When it is raining the drops of water are flowing on the chicks of a stone beauty and it seems like she is crying. The name of the building descends from this stone bas-relief. But who is the person portrayed and why she is crying is still a mystery for the city historians.
This mansion was constructed in 1907 upon an order of the merchant from Poltava by the architect Bratdtmanov in a modern style.
