Estate Dziedinka (today it is a village Dedino и Siege-Dedino) has been known since the first half of the 16th century as the possession of the Oginskys. In 1647, Dziedinka was sold to Sebastian Mirsky, Braslov Zemstvo judge and owner mior while. Then these lands passed to the representatives of the Platers-Rudomins, but the greatest contribution was made by the Rudnitskys, under whom the classical palace was built.

By order Alexander Rudnitsky, in 1810 the construction of the Osada-Dedino estate began. The work progressed slowly and was completed only in 1820. The new palace had two floors and the architecture of classicism, fashionable at that time, where a massive portico on four columns occupied the dominant place.

The estate belonged to the Rudnitskys until 1930, and they lost their lands due to the squandering of the last owner of Dedino - Zygmund Rudnitsky.

Under him, the palace fell into disrepair and gradually fell into disrepair. For some time, before the start of the war, the Vishnevetskys were in charge here, to whom Sigmund sold the family estate.

Judging by the planning decisions, there were living rooms on the second floor, and the first one performed administrative and guest functions, servants also lived right there and there was a kitchen. Separately, it is worth mentioning the cellar with beautiful neo-Gothic vaults, which is well preserved today.

In 2010, the estate was put up for auction and even managed to sell. True, the new owner failed to implement the restoration plan. A similar situation happened in 2018. On the Internet, I saw information that the building was sold again in August 2021, for just 29 rubles. The new owner will have a large amount of work to be done in the coming years.
