The history of the village doesn't differ much from the history of other Russian villages. However, the North didn't have serfdom and all of the countrymen were public. In comparison to maky other villages, ours was not the biggest. In 1911 the village accommodated 168 people in 25 yards. For 25 yards we had 68 horses and 62 cows. The countrymen historically tended to farming, grew rye, oats, barley, and flax; fished and hunted for food, not for selling. The village is far from big tracts and everything was done at the spot whenever and however possible.
