The City of Russell Springs is inviting HGTV to come and be a part of the change already happening on Main Street. For over a year now, the city has been investing time, energy, and resources into the revitalization of our historic downtown.

We would love to see an #hgtvhometowntakeover in Russell Springs! The city has submitted its video and narrative explaining why this community would be a great choice to renovate. We believe that Russell Springs is growing and we want to do everything we can to see it thrive. From the Historic Star Theater to every homegrown shop, diner, and business on Main Street, we want to encourage life, vitality, and flourishing.

Thank you to the Russell County Arts Council, the Star Theater, and Jade Robertson of Xtreme Detailing Auto Spa for being a part of our application video. Thank you to Ramie Hutchinson of Hutch Digital for helping us create, not only a great video for submission, but a great look at some of the tremendous potential right here on Main Street in Russell Springs.
