It was the most fashionable part of the entire city. You can still see some of this history in Russell, a neighborhood that's been a big part of the city for a long time.

Seeing History

Russell began as a unique mix of lovely mansion and cozy shotgun homes, creating a cool mix of architectural styles and lots of different real estate options. Russell is a neighborhood all on its own, with schools, restaurants, shops, parks and sure, a couple of places to get a drink or sip on craft beer. But this neighborhood is mostly residential and it's still full of amazing architecture.
