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.

The biggest main ventilation fan plant in CIS, Ventprom is hoisted in Artyomovsky.
