In 1654, the city-fortress Nezhegolsk, which was part of the
Belgorod defensive line, was built on the site of a modern Shebekino
suburb. The date of Shebekino’s appearance is considered to be the
year 1713, when it was first marked on Russian maps. The settlement
received its name by the name of the first landowner, who settled
his serfs here and founded a settlement - Lieutenant Colonel Ivan
Dmitrievich Shibeko, who was one of the participants of the Battle
of Poltava (between Russian forces under Peter the Great and Swedish
forces under command of Charles XII), who bought 160 quarters of the
