Ostenfeld was founded by Mennonite colonists from West Prussia in 1872. The colony was named in honor of the Chief Administrator of the Kontora (Office of Immigrant Oversight), Herr Osten-Sacken. Ostenfeld was one of a group of Mennonite Colonies known as the Am Trakt Settlement.
This village is now known as Voroshilovo.
The colonists in Osterfeld were members of the Köppental-Orloff congregation.
