Historical reference

Maryovo... for the first this name was  mentioned in the chronicles of the twelfth century.

This volost was divided into 10 dozens, which had in average 20 villages. In all in the volost there were 209 villages with 314 houses and 734 peasants on quitrent. The volost was pretty rich. Its Inhabitants engaged in blacksmithing, and were famous by fur trade and wild-honey farming. But these areas were quite out-of-the-way, forest and swampy. The current names Zaborov'ye, the village of Krasny Bor, Osin khutor, etc. confirm this.

When Velikiy Novgorod lost independence, the maryovtsy firmly linked their fate to Moscow Rus. Аfter the annexation of Novgorod to Moscow in 1478, the huge territory of about 1,000 square kilometers was confiscated in favor of the Grand Duke of Moscow. In the period of 1478-1495 years, all lands were donated to the estates. In 1495, Derevskaya Pyatina had the record "The volost of the Grand Duke Velilla sitting boyars children and landlords".

As the land in Russia was the main wealth, it was often taken a census, given all the opportunities to increase the collection of tribute. Moscow scribes had inventory of Moreva volost in 1495. The volost center was a churchyard Moreva which later became Maryovo.

At the end of the fifteenth century, Moreva had repeatedly attacked by Lithuanian troops, and in 1612-1617 it was occupied by Lithuanian and Swedish. As mentioned in the documents of 1620 the volost Moreva was nearly empty and there was no population. People were returning from Moscow places in 1620-1622.
Morevskaya volost was also mentioned in 1678 and 1710. However, in the XIX century, it was named Moiseevskaya and belonged to Demyansk County.

After the reform of 1861, the village Marevskoy significant changed: the peasants became an more efficient and more educated, they left the village to work in St. Petersburg and other cities.

Village Maryovo was the center of the Moiseevskaya volost of the Demyansk County. It was located on the road Demyansk — Holm. In 1882, the Velilskoy, Moiseevskaya and Molvotitskoy volost consisted of 347 villages with the population of 18,000 people. Private property, profit, self-interest and speculative trading were the driving force of the village life.

The news of the revolution came to Matyovo by the telegraph. Class struggle was flared up in the spring and summer of 1918. But the local authority had been strengthened, and the rebellions were suppressed.
Beginning of collectivization in our area began with the collective farm "October", organized in 1929 in the village Sidorovo of Novorusskiy Village Council. Nevertheless, khutors continued to exist after collectivization.

In August 1941, the fascist army reached the district boundaries (Molvotitsky district was in the Leningrad region).

By February 1942, the Soviet Army in conjunction with the guerrillas almost completely liberated Molvotitsky land from invaders.

By the early 50's, the area under cereals, flax, potatoes were restored as well as cattle head. In the fields, there were tractors, planters, combines, threshers:

  • In 1950, the consolidation of collective farms was carried out, 34 artels were formed from 193 farms.
  • Marevsky district with the district center Maryovo was formed in 1967.
  • In 1968, a music school was opened in the village Maryovo.
  • In 1970, the area was completely electrified.
  • In 1972, the flights of Yak-40 began in the route Maryovo — Leningrad.
  • In 1975, the hotel with dining room was opened in the village Maryovo.
  • In 1976, Marevskaya automatic telephone exchange was commissioned and the first viewers visited the cinema "Victory".

History of Marevskiy district is inextricably linked with the history of Russia, and it is still going on...
