Trabzon Uzungol history

In days of yore, this settlement was known as Sherah. The historical annals of 1681 reveal the presence of a dozen all-Muslim avarız soldiers in this settlement, as documented in the Avarız Register. During the 1923 Population Exchange, Priest Yorgos Papadopoulos, hailing from Division, documented the village as "Saraho" in his travel diaries. Notably, he mentioned that some of the Greek residents of the village migrated to Gümüşhane, eventually establishing a village named Fitiyana after the Oflus embraced Islam.

Following the founding of the Republic of Turkey, the settlement underwent a nomenclatural transformation. Originally linked to the Kadahor (Çaykara) subdistrict under the appellation Şerah, it underwent a name change in 1959. The shift to the name Uzungöl was enshrined in Law No. 7267, citing its "foreign origins and potential for confusion." This alteration officially came into effect, and the new name began to appear in records commencing from the 1960 census.
