The estate was built in the XVI century, but its “moment of glory” came in 1863, after the suppression of the uprising of Kastus Kalinovsky. After that, many estates went to the tsarist officials. The estate in Maryina Gorka, located in a picturesque corner on the banks of the Titovka River, went to the then Minister of Internal Affairs Lev Makov. In its current form, the official built the manor house in 1876. The historical appearance of the building has been preserved, today there is a medical institution located here, and several modern buildings have been attached to the estate. In the XX century, the estate was completely rebuilt several times, its purpose also changed: from 1935 to 1941, the House of Creativity of Writers of Belarus was located here. During this time, many Belarusian classics have visited here, including Yanka Kupala, Yakub Kolas, Zmitrok Byadulya, Kuzma Chorny.
