History: 

Susannental was founded on 3 August 1767 by Baron Caneau de Beauregard as a Lutheran colony. It was named after Baron Beauregard's wife.

Today, what remains of the former colony of Susannental is known as Sosnovka (not to be confused with the former colony of Schilling on the Bergseite which is also now known as Sosnovka).

Church: 

Before 1820, Susannental was part of the parish headquartered in Bettinger. Beginning in 1820, Susannental became part of the parish headquartered in the neighboring parish of Näb.       

The first church built in Susannental was in 1873. It was constructed of wood and could seat 1,200 worshipers.
