Heritage of the Jokish merchant dynasty in Moscow

Abstract. The paper is devoted to one of the merchant dynasties of Russia undeservedly forgotten in the post-revolutionary period - the dynasty of textile entrepreneurs, merchants of the 1st guild, hereditary honorary citizens of the family Jokish, their creative and charitable activities. The contribution of the representatives of the dynasty to the formation and preservation of the historical and cultural heritage of Moscow is analyzed. The role of the Jokish family in saving the former noble country estate Mikhalkovo, preventing its further destruction and carrying out the first restoration of its architectural monuments is considered. The objects of cultural heritage created by order of the merchants Jokish in the village of Mikhalkovo, Moscow district, by famous Moscow architects M.K. Geppener, A.S. Kaminsky, M.G. Piotrovich and D.P. Sukhov are investigated. It tells about the charitable financial assistance of the «Jokish» Company in the construction of the church of St. Nicholas in the village Stary Koptevo, which was destroyed in Soviet times. It is concluded that it is necessary to preserve that part of the cultural heritage that can still be saved.

Key words: heritage, merchant dynasties, Jokish, Mikhalkovo country estate, cloth manufactory, cultural heritage sites.
