History of Buguruslan

It was founded as a settlement on the right bank of River Bolshoy Kinel in 1748 by Russian peasants and handicraftsmen, who moved to Zavolzhye. It kept the name of the Bashkir village of Buguruslan. The name was derived from Turkic antroponyms: Arsalan meaning lion, and Buga literally stud bull, but was used in names as parents wish for power and might to their child.

It was a district town of the Orenburg Province from 1796, and of the Samara Province from 1851.

In the 19th century it was an important trading center for grain, wax, wool, and leather, with two fairs per year. The town had a soap factory and a wax refinery.

In 1847 the Pokrovsk Convent was founded in Buguruslan.

In 1856 the district town of Buguruslan in the Samara Province had 2 churches, 735 houses, and 33 shops.
