History: 

Strassendorf was founded in 1855 by colonists resettling from Yagodnaya Polyana and Pobochnaya. Over time, colonists from the neighboring daughter colonies of Schönfeld and Schöndorf also moved to Strassendorf.

It was called Strassendorf because it was a village (dorf in German) located along the road (strasse in German) from Novouzensk to Pokrovsk (Engels).

Following the deportation of the Volga Germans in 1941, this former Volga German settlement was abandoned.

Church: 

The colonists who lived in Strassendorf were Lutheran.
