By the completion of the restoration operation of Shahidi historical house in Sarcheshmeh quarter in Gorgan, which was done with the investment of the private sector, this historic house was put into operation by holding an exhibition entitled “Historical Documents and Photos of the Restoration Process of Shahidi House”. This house was the residence of one of the historical and influential figures of Astarabad (present-day Gorgan) in the Qajar era.
