Alt-Kronsweide, originally Kronsweide, was one of the first villages of the Chortitza Mennonite colony, located on the banks of the Dnieper River. In 1833 the major part of the village was moved to a site three miles (5 km) away, where Neu-Kronsweide was established, leaving only six farmers in Alt-Kronsweide. The rest of the settlement was sold in 1910 to the Allgemeine Mennonitische Konferenz (General Mennonite Conference), which built a mental hospital there called Bethania.
