In 1902 Zankovetska bought a small house with a farmstead in Suchkovy Lane (now Zankovetska Str). Natalya MikhaiIivna Bogomolets-Lazurska, a friend of M. Zankovetska, remembered this dwelling: "A red-brick house of Maria Constantynivna was set in a green clean courtyard. Nearby there was a small garden, which led to a magnificent terrace...". Unfortunately, except for the house, nothing has remained. A memorial plaque reminds of the fact, that here lived the great actress. The first memorial plaque was installed in 1960. In December 1993 a new memorial plaque (with more accurate data) was installed on the house.
