Krasnoborski district is both industrial and agricultural. The chief industry here is logging. The agriculture is dominated by cattle-breeding, though grain-growing and vegetable-growing also make а contribution to the economy. The main crop is potatoes. Other important crops include rye, spring wheat and fodder crops.
The ancient village of Krasnoborsk, the administrative centre of the district, is situated on the left bank of the Northern Dvina. All around it there are fine pine forests.
In the old days the Stroganovs, rich landowners and merchants, had their salt-works here. In former times Krasnoborsk was also known for the manufacturing of locks, wood-carving and weaving multi-coloured wedding belts. А well-known landscape painter А.А.Borisov (1886-1934) spent his childhood and youth in а Krasnoborsk suburb. А.Borisov travelled much in the Arctic and glorified its severe nature in his pictures. The painter' s former farmstead houses now а children' s sanatorium. Borisov's pictures are exhibited in one of its rooms.
Krasnoborsk is also the birthplace of Samson Sukhanov, а brilliant mason master who took part in the construction of several buildings in St.Petersburg and the monument to К.Minin and D.Pozharski in Moscow. Seven kilometres from Krasnoborsk, in а very picturesque place, Solonikha, а balneological resort, is situated.
