History:
  • Dreispitz was founded on 16 September 1767 by colonists who had been recruited by officials of Catherine the Great's government and was therefore known as a crown colony.
  • Following the release of the Volga Germans from the "Special Settlements" in 1956, many Volga German families who had originally lived in neighboring colonies returned to settle in Dreispitz. The post-1946 cemetery contains the graves of many of these returning families.
  • Today, what remains of the former colony of Dreispitz is known as Verkhnyaya Dobrinka.
  • Dreispitz had a population of 151 in 1773, 3,747 in 1912, and 1800 in 1926. The first statistical report of the Volga colonies in 1769 shows Dreispitz with a population of 124. Of 31 families, 28 were considered suited for farming. Livestock listed included: 65 horses, 22 work oxen, 112 cows and calves, and 19 swine. There were 26 houses, 16 granaries, and 13 stables.
Church:
  • The Lutheran congregation in Dreispitz was part of the Galka parish which was founded in 1767.
  • Nothing remains of the church building in Dreispitz. Today, a park is located where it once stood, north of the former winter prayer house which is today being used as a Community Center.
