Neu-Schilling was founded as a Lutheran colony in 1855 by colonists resettling from Schilling. It was located 153 kilometers southeast of Saratov and was part of the Friedenfeld parish.
Neu-Schilling no longer exists. The documents accompanying the 1934 Map of the Volga Germans (reprinted in 1997) incorrectly identifies it as the current village of Kostyantinivka.
Neu-Schilling is the birthplace of the poet Robert Frank (1918-2001).
The Lutheran congregation in Neu-Schilling was served by the parish in Eckheim where there was a resident pastor.
