December 16, 2016 21:38


It is assumed that the settlement on the site of Voznesenka village arose in 1755 when in the Southern Urals the search for and development of copper ore began. According to archive information, Bashkir searchers headed by sergeant Rasul Idzhimyasov discovered a field near future Voznesenk, which was credited to the Zlatoust plant and called as Kiznikeevsky, earlier the village was called Kiznikey.

The families of serfs from central Russia were transported for work in the mines and factories. Living and working conditions, first being very hard, were changed for the better after the mine had passed from the hands of a private owner to the treasury. By the end of the XIX century there were more than three thousand people, quite well-off, to collect money to build a large church - first wooden, later, when the temple and hundreds of courtyard were destroyed by fire, of stone.

After the erection of the Holy Ascension Cathedral Kiznikey was renamed to Voznesenk. During the Soviet government the village passed in the administrative subordination of the newly established Bashkir Republic and has undergone by dekulakisation, so that there was nothing left from its former prosperity. The temple was closed, turned into a warehouse and aviary.
