Astrakhan Gubernia Terek Oblast
First posted on September 17th 2010






Stavropol was established as a Russian Empire army camp in 1777 and granted the status of a city in 1785. In 1843 it became the seat of a Russian Orthodox bishop. In 1847 Stavropol was designated capital of newly-created Stavropol Gubernia (within the Governorate General of the Caucasus). In 1920 a stretch of territory in the Northeast was ceded to the newly established Kalmyk AO. Stavropol Gubernia was disestablished in 1924, its territory annexed into the newly-formed North Caucasian Krai (1924-1937) within the RSFSR (1917-1991) and USSR (1922-1991).
Stavropol bordered on Astrakhan Gubernia and the Territory of the Don Cossacks in the North, on Terek Oblast in the Southeast, on Kuban Gubernia in the Southwest and on the territory of the Black Sea Cossacks in the West.
