History

Founded in 1389 as Rogozhi, the town was later renamed Bogorodsk (lit. [a town] of the Mother of God) by a Catherine the Great's decree in 1781, when it was granted town status. Throughout the 19th century and for a good part of the 20th century, the town was a major textile center, processing cotton, silk, and wool. In 1930, the town was renamed Noginsk after Bolshevik Viktor Nogin.
