History
      Lysanderhöh was founded by Mennonite colonists from West Prussia in 1864 [some sources cite 1862]. The colony was named in honor of the Chief Administrator of the Kontora (Office of Immigrant Oversight), Herr Lysander. Lysanderhöh was one of a group of Mennonite Colonies known as the Am Trakt Settlement. In 1881, some of the settlers joined Pastor Claus Epp Jr. and his group and moved to Turkestan.
      Today this village is called Kalinino.
