History[edit]

Founded in 1665, it was originally called Yegorshin povytok, after Yegorsha Kozhevin, a Cossack who owned the land. The village later became known as Yegorshina derevnya; in 1864 its name officially became Yegorshino (Его́ршино). A coal deposit was discovered in the vicinity of the village in 1871. During Soviet times, a settlement Imeni Artyoma (и́мени Артёма) was established near the coal deposits. In 1938, Yegorshino and Imeni Artyoma were merged into the town of Artyomovsky.
