The Russian Village Historic District in Southbury, Connecticut, also known as Churaevka, is a historic district that was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.[1] It encompasses a summer retreat established in 1923 by a group of Russian immigrants, with 46 buildings on three roads branching off the west end of Russian Village Road. Most of these are single-story wood-frame cottages that are generally vernacular in style, except for distinctive Russian touches applied to elements such as entry hoods and dormers.[2]
