It was formed in 1928. For a long time the district was a part of different regions, in 1954 it became part of Lipetsk. In 10 years the Leo Tolstoy settlement was divided between two others: Dankovsky and Chaplyginsky. But two years later he regained his independence.
Almost all his life, Lev Nikolaevich lived inYasnaya Polyana. But he died not in his native village. So it happened that his death overtook the station's chief. The writer last saw exactly Ozolin's house. The village of Leo Tolstoy received this name 8 years after the death of the writer.
Already in 1918 in the house of the station's heada museum dedicated to Leo Nikolayevich was opened. After the Great Patriotic War, this memorial became a branch of the Moscow State Museum LN. Tolstoy. By the way, in 1927 the settlement became much larger and received the status of the city.
