Russell Main Street, Inc.

Make your way Downtown

Our Vision

Dedicated to the renovation, economic growth, business recruitment and retention, and maintenance of a vibrant downtown district


About us

Main Street is the economic engine, the big state, the core of the community. Our Main Streets tell us who we are and who we were, and how the past has shaped us. Our Main Streets are the plans of shared memory where people still come together to live, work, and play. The Russell Main Street District has been a designated Main Street since 1991. The Main Street program uses a common-sense approach to tackle the complex issues of revitalization, capitalizing on downtown’s history, and identifiying the resources of the community itself. 


Upcoming Events

Russell Main Street offers numerous celebrations and special events to the Russell community through the year. The events attract local residents as well as residents of surrounding areas. From fun business promotions to festivals and holiday celebrations, Russell Main Street, has something for everyone to enjoy.

Business Resources

Russell Main Street offers an incentive package in the form of a low-interest loan (IWW Loans) and a design grant to stimulate private investment into our community. The loan program intends to create employment opportunities, save existing jobs, provide services and products, develop or strengthen new or existing businesses, acquire, rehabilitate or preserve properties, and create a stronger tax base.

Staff provides technical assistance, promotional opportunities, business resources, and much more to our members. Our organizational success rests with the community businesses, organizations, and leaders who support our organization.
