Upon the extinction of his family, the village passed to Princes Gruzinsky, a related line of Georgian royalty who arrived to Russia in 1724. That family owned the village until the death of Prince Georgy Gruzinsky in 1852. From 1749 to 1808, the Lyskovo estate housed St. Nino's Cross, the principal relic of Georgian Christianity.

Town status was granted to Lyskovo in 1925.[citation needed]
