Kronsfeld was a Mennonite village in the Chortitza settlement in South Russia. It was founded in 1880 by Heinrich Rempel. The first settlers were Johann Rempel, Julius Wall, Jakob Ketler, Heinrich Wall, and Wilhelm Wider. The lease contract covered a period of 25 years; the rental amounted to about one ruble per acre. In 1900 a school was built. In 1907 the land was purchased through a Farmers' Bank, each settler receiving a farm of 32-37 acres.
