The village legend tells the story of how Klyuchevskoy spring was discovered. According to this legend, one godly village woman once came to the top of the hill at the edge of the village to give a calf grazing there to drink. Not far from the hill called “bugor” (“mount”) she saw an icon in the grass. The woman picked up the holy image and hung it in the God’s corner of her house. Before lunch she decided to pray and found out that the icon had disappeared. She went back to the hill and saw the icon still there in the grass. She thought that she must have forgotten it there the day before. She brought the icon home again but miraculously it found its way back again. The woman went to the hill again. Having found the icon in the same old place again, she decided to take it to the church priest. On the day when she discovered the icon many other villagers said that they had observed Virgin Mary, dressed in golden attire, descending on the golden ribbons from the heaven. While the woman as talking to the priest handing the miraculous icon over to him, thunder struck outside. Everyone came out of the church and saw a big water fountain spouting right out of the mountain. That is how the one-of-a-kind Klyuchevskoy spring found its way onto the surface of the Earth with its 12 jets.
In the middle of the 20th century the springs got buried by the ground and only one jet kept spouting like a fountain. It was so loud that it could be heard from hundreds of meters early in the morning. Today just like in the olden days all 12 springs have broken through the ground. Joining each other, 12 jets of the purest and tastiest water form one strong spring rushing down Klyuchevskaya mountain where there is a deep well installed. A few years ago the spring was equipped with modern amenities and consecrated in honor of the Reverend Seraphim of Sarov. A bathing hut has been built near the well too.
