Kenozerye: Zehnovskaya flour mill

Posted on August 31, 2016 by marina


Zehnovo village is one of the most ancient settlements of kenozerskih and its history begins in the 16th century, when, according to one legend, the first inhabitant named Zeh settled here. Presumably, it was someone from the first Christians arrived at Kenozero during the existence of the Kenoreckyi waterway that connected Lake Onega with river Onega using which Orthodox people from Novgorod came to these lands.

Today in Zehnovo there are six residential courtyards, while by today’s standards, the village is considered to be the largest Zaozernoe settlement. There are not many remaining residents. No schools, no shops, nothing. Only alcohol and patriotic flags.

The main attraction of the village is the chapel of St. John the Evangelist. Then we head in the direction of the forest on the road to the village Spicyno.
