History: 

Langenfeld was founded in 1859 across the river from Krasny-Kut by colonists resettling from the Bergseite colonies of Walter, Frank, Shcherbakovka, Dietel, Hussenbach, Huck, Kolb, and Norka.

Following the anti-German sentiment of World War I, Langenfeld was known by the name of Krestnyi after 1915.  This name means godfather in Russian.

Today what remains of Langenfeld is known as Verkhnaya Yeruslan.
