The origin of the name "Mishennaya"

Initially, the hill was called Mezhennaya (from the word "mezha" means "border") since it actually separated the city from other settlements in Kamchatka. Now the meaning has been lost, since roads were laid through the hill many decades ago, and the new "Mishennaya" came from the colloquial. The locals called it "Mishenka."
