What is interesting, apparently, Butovt-Andreykovichi did not live in Porozovo, perhaps they rented out the estate. In 1937, the Bogudenki estate was bought by the local gmina with a further plan to equip a hospital here. During the war, the inhabitants of Porozovo, who had lost their homes, lived within the walls of the already former estate, a military unit and an infirmary were located right there.

In the winter of 2023, the estate was put up for auction again, the starting amount at the auction was $9000.
