Russell’s Main Street is getting a folksy new look! Under the guidance of the Main Street Revitalization Committee (MSR), a group of local business people, Russell is focusing on a number of projects to enhance the business district. This new look has been initiated with the addition of stunning wooden arches that were installed at eight intersections along the Russell streetscape.

The next phase will involve lighting the arches, refurbishing storefronts in an “Old World Theme”, and adding some special streetscapes. The transition is set to take place over the next few years, so be sure to watch for subtle changes every time you visit.

MSR is also working hard to attract and support additional shops & services with good quality unique merchandise and to host more festivals and events, all geared to making Russell an exciting and fun-filled vacation destination.
