History

History of Shovgenovsky District dates back to July 27, 1922, when Adyghe (Cherkess) Autonomous Oblast was established within the Russian SFSR. At that time, the autonomous oblast consisted of three okrugs, one of which, Farssky, covered the territory of modern Shovgenovsky District. On August 5, 1924, Farssky Okrug was renamed Khakurinokhablsky District (Хакуринохабльский район). On December 7, 1956, Khakurinokhablsky District was abolished, and its territory distributed among Koshekhablsky, Giaginsky, and Krasnogvardeysky Districts. On January 12, 1965, however, the district was re-established under the name of Shovgenovsky. During all of the district's history, the aul of Khakurinokhabl served as the district's administrative center.
