Krusevo

Krusevo was mentioned in documents dating back to 1467-68, when it was given as a mezra to Hussein-beg (ruler) together with Prilep and 30 other places. By the end of the 18th century, Armenians came from the region surrounding Korce (Albania) and Mijaks from Mala Reka. They were traders, handcrafters, woodcarvers, and fresco-painters.
