The reach can be considered as the most ancient city of the Ivanovo Region today. The set of archaeological and annalistic data indicates existence of the Reach during the domongolsky period: the city arose owing to kolonizatsionny process and was one of strong points of Old Russian colonization of edge.

Construction of the first Moscow fortress on Volga in 1410 by the grand duke Vasily Dmitrievich and the construction of a plyossky customs and defensive system pursued the important aim of fixing of quickly growing Moscow principality on the Volga trade way and played a significant role in implementation of centralization policy Moscow knyazey1.

At the beginning of the 17th century. A reach, having lost the strategic importance of the strengthened point, becomes the center of extensive Plyossky tithe — the church district. At the end of the 17th century. The reach gains value of trade gate of future Ivanovo-Shuysky industrial region arising in east part of the Volga-Klyazma Entre Rios.

Peter I's transformations contributed to the fast development of the industry in. Reach: already during the period from 1778 to 1784 in the Reach there were three linen manufactories developing a flamsky cloth, pestryad, ravenduk and other products.

From the second half of the 18th century the number cloth, linen, tanning, distilling, etc. enterprises actively grew in the Reach. At the beginning of the 18th century of. The reach considerably surpassed many other cities of the Volga region in the economic value, thanks to favorable arrangement on the main trade artery of the country — the Volga River — and convenient access dorogam2.

two malting plants, brewery, two mitkalevy factories. Plyossky merchants did active business other cities. In the Reach and from the city conducted main post and trade roads.

In the 60th of the 19th century. The reach reaches the highest economic recovery. It occurred for the reason that in the absence of the railroads Reach was the closest Volga pier to the city of Shuya and the village to Ivanov where since the end of the 18th century the textile industry began to develop quickly.

In 1797 at the emperor Paul I the namestnichestvo in Kostroma was abolished. Kostroma and Galich (Unzhenskaya) provinces were merged to one Kostroma province. The reach which was since 1778 the district city was nominated zashtatnym1. Such status of the city remained till October, 1917
