What I love about Russellville is that it is a small town, the community is close-knit, and the opportunities to experience better education are endless. For instance, since the high school is so small, students here are able to have one-on-one teaching and earn more knowledge this way. I love the festivities that are available around town, like the Tabacco Festival which happens every October, and I enjoy the Halloween celebrations that take place on the square. Russellville has shaped me to be the person I am today. It is my childhood, and my home.

Russellville, KY is a wonderful small town. I love the friendly faces and southern hospitality. When one arrives to Russellville, they are welcomed with open arms and a big smile!
Russellville is a small town where everybody knows everybody and everyone find different relatives. In this small town comes a huge rivalry between Russellville High School and Logan County High School. Whether it be football, basketball, softball, or baseball everyone is there and cheering on there side. A change I'd like to see is simply people accepting people for who they are and being there for each other
