The Andrichevskaiya bell tower (the second half of the 19th century) makes a single natural and architectural ensemble with the wooden church and the unique peasant houses, preserving the traditional northern appearance.
Near the bell tower there is a wooden church named after Saint Nicholas, made by the diligence of the local people, by the order of the ecclesiastical consistory made on the 16th of July 1851 and consecrated on the 21st of October 1858. Nowadays the church doesn’t function.
Till the 60s of the 20th century in the bell tower there was the kolkhoz warehouse. In 1965 the kolkhoz in Andrichevo was closed, and the bell tower was abandoned. The bell tower was restored by 2012 by the diligence of the local entrepreneurs Gavrilov A.N and Molchanov A.A.
