History: 

Friedenberg was founded in 1860 on the right bank of the Yeruslan River by colonists resettling from Franzosen, Galka, Kraft, Stephan, Schwab, and Anton.

Following the deportation of the Volga Germans in 1941, the settlement was renamed Mirnoye ("peaceful").  Today, what remains of the former Volga German colony of Friedenberg is still called Mirnoye.

Church: 

The Lutheran congregation in Friedenberg was part of the parish located at Gnadentau where the pastor resided.
