Schöndorf was founded in 1855 35 kilometers northeast of Krasny-Kut.  The founding colonists came from Pobochnaya. It was located on the left back of the Yeruslan River.

Since the founding of the colony, there was a parochial school in the colony. A government "Central School" was built in Schöndorf in 1871. A mill was completed in 1919.

During the 1921 famine, 214 people died in Schöndorf.

Today, what remains of the former Volga German settlement of Schöndorf is now part of Repnoye.
