This kind of architecture, crowned by a hipped roof three – storey building, each floor of which as it rises in height is reduced in size. The palace was built in the XV century and belonged to the grandfather of Tsar Mikhail Fedorovich Romanov – Nikita Romanov. Here in 1596 was born the future founder of the Romanov dynasty. Therefore, this place is especially revered among people with monarchist convictions. During the reign of Boris Godunov, the Romanovs, as the most likely contenders for the Russian throne, was in disgrace. In 1599 Theodore Nikitich jailed and then forcibly tonsured as a monk under the name Filaret. And the Houses became ownerless.

The revival of the yard began only after the election of Mikhail Fedorovich to the Russian throne. He placed in the imperial palace in the Kremlin, and his house became known as the "Old sovereign's yard that Barbarous sacrum or Varvara – the mountain."
