As Russellville’s economy grows, the selection of housing is keeping pace. New developments in and beyond city limits compliment established neighborhoods that surround the central business district in Pope County. Russellville’s older neighborhoods exhibit a sense of the community’s past. Many have been kept in pristine condition, while others have been renovated to fit the needs of the twenty-first century. Established neighborhoods offer a variety in price, architecture and activities. Downtown Russellville continues its revival as historic buildings are renovated into uses that serve a contemporary lifestyle. Just to the south of Main Street and west of Arkansas Avenue lies one of Russellville’s oldest neighborhoods. The tree lined streets frame an eclectic mix of architecture from every era of Russellville’s history. You will find every style of home from, Queen Anne Victorians, Arts and Craft style, quaint bungalows, cottages, shotgun houses, Tudor Revival, ranch style, and even a Frank Lloyd Wright designed home.
