Throughout Belarus there are various memorial columns, which were often installed by representatives of noble families in their lands. One of these memorial columns located in the village Ososhniki, next to the former estate of Bykhovtsev-Dzekonsky.

The first is conditionally official, confirmed by an informational nameplate, according to which the column is a monument in memory of the rebels of Kalinouski and the events of 1863. At that time, these lands belonged to Kazimir Dzekonsky.
