History of Nizhny Lomov

It was founded as a sentry fortress in 1636. The settlement was named the Lomovskaya Sloboda, and then the village of Nizhny Lomov.

In 1708 it was attributed to the Azov Province (the Voronezh Province since 1725), and was part of the Tambov Province from 1719. Since 1801 it has belonged to the Penza Province.

In the second half of the 18th century it was one of the largest trading centers of the Penza Province. A large-scale fair was annually carried out there. In 1858 the peasant S. P. Kamendrovsky founded a match factory (nowadays a plywood plant) in Nizhny Lomov.

In 1856 the district town Nizhny Lomov of the Penza Province had 10 churches, 750 houses, and 23 shops.

Architecture and Sights

The town construction was carried out according to the regular plan approved in 1785. The town has preserved stone and wooden merchant houses built in the 19th century, buildings of the former municipal and parish schools, as well as buildings of the Uspensky Monastery (1880), and the wooden municipal hospital (the second half of the 19th century).
