The place emerged as the village of Bolshaya Gribanowka ("Great Gribanowka") at the beginning of the 18th century as one of the first Russian villages in the area. It was mentioned in 1708 in connection with the participation of its inhabitants in the Cossack and peasant uprising under Kondrati Bulavin .

With the opening of the line to Borisoglebsk in 1869, the village received a railway connection relatively early; In the following years the line to Tsaritsyn (now Volgograd) on the Volga was extended.

In 1935, Bolshaya Gribanovka became the administrative center of a newly founded Rajon. In 1957 the place was given the status of an urban-type settlement under its current name.
