In the middle of the 19th century, its population reached 258 people. After the peasant reform of 1861, Terekhovo considerably expanded its territory, having 42 yards and 274 inhabitants in 1877. In the middle of 1860, a peasant Egorov arranged a small paper-painting factory there, which had about 20 workers.
At the end of 1940, Terekhovo was officially included in the territory of Moscow and avoided demolition, which was a serious threat for many villages of that time. The village became a part of the landscape protection area called "Mnevnikovskaya Flood Land", that is why it wasn't under threat of mass building.
In 2006 Terekhovo was put on the list of the villages, which would be totally reconstructed. Nowadays there are 31 houses and 87 inhabitants registered in the village. Some of well-to-do men from the nearest regions keep stables for their horses there.
The streets in Terekhovo don't have official names. Also, the village doesn't have water supply, sewerage and heating system. Fires often happen there, and the territory was fenced off from the highway. The residents continue to receive new apartments, but demolition works haven't begun yet. So you can still visit the last village in Moscow.
Not far from the village, on Krylatsky bridge, you can enjoy a nice view of the city:
