It is a cozy house with a history of 220 years. The majority of the citizens of Stepanavan who had first settled in this town have lived at least a day in this house. The street where the house is located was called Milioni Street because the majority of the houses of that street belonged to a millionaire before the Soviet Union was created, now renamed to Sos Sargsyan, after famous actor who was born on this street. The basement of the house has served as a spinning mill about a century ago, where women carded the wool and made thread out of it.
