Until the founding of the parish in Ruševo after the Turks, Čaglin belonged to the parish of Sesvete (St. XV.). When Vjenceslav Turković, a merchant from Karlovac, bought a Kutjevo estate next to the Pleternica-Našice railway line at a public auction in 1882, the new owner built a sawmill in Irenovac and built 50 kilometers of narrow-gauge industrial railway line, which brought trains from all sides technical timber to the new sawmill.
