History: 

Leitsinger was founded on 12 May 1767 by colonists who had been recruited by LeRoy & Pictet. The colony was named after Philipp Leitsinger who served as the colony's first mayor.

On 24 October 1774, the Kirghiz attacked the colonies of Leitsinger, Seelmann, Keller, and Hölzel. Many colonists were killed, and 317 were taken into captivity. The colonies of Leitsinger and Keller were destroyed and not rebuilt.  Those colonists who survived the attacks were absorbed into the neighboring colonies of Hölzer, Preuss, and Seelmann. A group also established another colony which was given the name Neu-Kolonie.

Today, nothing remains of the former colony of Leitsinger.

Church: 

The original colonists who settled in Leitsinger were of the Roman Catholic faith.
