It was the headquarters of Gross Born garrison; German armed forces stationed there. At that time, the building was situated on Adolf Hitler Straße ( presently Aleja Niepodleglosci). In between 1945- 1992 it was the most important building of the city and the headquarters of the general staff of the Soviet ( afterwards Russian) garrison of the armed forces stationed in Borne Sulinowo - of the 6th Vitebsko-Novgorod' Guards Mechanized Division (part of the Northern Group of Forces).
