Friesenov, a Mennonite settlement in West Siberia, which embraced about 5,400 acres, was situated 18 miles from Petropavlovsk and four miles from Tokushi, the railroad station. This estate was settled in 1901 by 11 families; it was laid out in individual farms rather than in the customary village pattern. The villa of the former owner was rebuilt into a school, which was also used for church services.
