History of Isheyevka

It was founded on the right bank of River Sviyaga in 1625. It was first recorded in the beginning of the 17th century (Tatar service men with Prince Isheyev").

In 1648, in connection with construction Simbirsk - Karsunsk border line, a group of horse Cossacks (50 people) was lodged in Isheyevka. They laid the foundation to the Russian settling of the area. The Cossacks performed watchman service on the border and defended avenues of approach to Simbirsk.

In the second half of the 17th century the Cossacks experienced a drastic worsening of their living conditions that triggered their active involvement in the siege of Simbirsk by the riot army of Stepan Razin. At the beginning of the 17th century the Cossacks with their families were resettled to Azov, their lands sold to the Brigadier General Prince Sergey Dolgoruky and the nobleman Fedor Stepanov Ivashev.

In 1790 Isheyevka came into possession of the noblemen Stepan and Anna Krotkovs, who built there a rich estate, cultivated an extensive orchard and pond fishery, opened a saw mill on the water engine and a cloth factory in 1802.

By 1910 Isheyevka had more than 2 thousand dwellers, 387 of them working at the factory, whereas the others were peasants.

In the mid 19th century Isheyevka was an important cloth production center.

It got the status of an industrial township on November 27, 1945.
