MOKHOVAYA STREET (until 1826 - Khamovaya Street or Khamovskaya Street), between Tchaikovskogo Street and Belinskogo Street. It was built up in the settlement of weavers ("khamovnik" - hence the first name), who worked at canvas yards of the Partikulyarnaya (Civil) Shipyard and the Main Admiralty. In 1731-34, SS. Simon & Anna Church was constructed (building 46), in 1901 - its apartment house (architect V.A. Kosyakov); in 1869-72, a chapel arose at the corner of Belinskogo Street and Mokhovaya Street (architect G.I. Winterhalter). The architecture of modern Mokhovaya Street dates back to the second half of the 19th - early 20th centuries. I.A. Goncharov lived for many years and died in 1891 in Building 3, owned by M.M.
