At the beginning of June 1841, in the town Milkovshchina, a writer and a bright public figure was born Eliza Pavlovskaya (Ozheshko). Elisa's father, Benedikt Pavlovsky, acquired these lands from the Borzhetskys in the first half of the 19th century. The Pavlovskys did not build chic and pompous palaces, but in these parts they had 2 modest one-story estates made of wood. These buildings have not survived to this day, but certain reminders have still been preserved.

A maple alley led to the small house of the Pavlovskys, partially preserved to this day. In front of the entrance there was a beautiful lawn with a circle decorated with a garden. There were also some outbuildings, and a little in the distance there was a family tomb, dismantled in 1867.
