The building, located in the very center of the Sofia Courtyard, has a complex construction history. It arose in the 1780s on the basis of the reconstruction of the older service buildings standing here – a stone cellar with a dryer on top and a monastic building.

Since the end of the XIX century, the building was occupied by the consistory.
Currently, this building houses the Tobolsk Theological Seminary.

This building is associated with an unusual monument of the Sofia Courtyard-an underground passage, which is currently preserved.
