History of Chukhloma

The exact time and place of foundation of Chukhloma is unknown, there is evidence that the city existed in the 10th century, but not on the southern, but on the northern shore of the Chukhlomsky Lake (where the Gorodetsky Monastery Avraamiev was later founded). The year of foundation of Chukhloma on the southern coast is considered to be 1381 (the year of the first mentioning of Chukhloma in literary sources).

Remote from the main transit routes, Chukhloma did not belong to the trade cities. Its population existed craft and petty trade. A significant part of the inhabitants engaged in fishing and horticulture. The lack of pasture land limited the ability to maintain livestock and hindered the development of butter making and cheese making. The only enterprise that existed in Chukhloma was the brewery of the tax collector Nelidov, recorded in 1844 documents.
