History of Bashmakovo

It was founded as the station settlement on the Morshansk-Syzran railroad between two villages Kolesovka (from the North) and Mikhailovka (from the South) in April, 1875. It was named after the brothers Alexander and Sergey Bashmakovs, cofounders of the Morshansky railroad construction. Sergey Bashmakov owned the Village of Mikhailovka, near which the railway station and shopfloors were built.

An elementary school, library, people's house, postal telegraph office and a telephone exchange were opened in Bashmakovo in 1923.

In 1928 the settlement became the center of the Bashmakov District of the Penza Region.

By that time Bashmakovo had a large-scale poultry farm, an elevator, a factory training school, a hospital, a cinema, a secondary school, 2 power stations, a machine and a tractor station (69 tractors). 148 workers were occupied in the industry before the Great Patriotic War.

In 1959 Bashmakovo got the status of an urban township.
