Russellville[dead link] is a city in the Caves and Lakes region of Kentucky. It offers hunting, fishing, antiquing, and more.


Even though Kentucky pledged neutrality during the Civil War, it became the site of the Confederate State Convention at one point. Russellville also was the home at one point or another of four different Kentucky governors.

Get in[edit]

Russellville is accessible by car from the east or west via U.S. 68, a 4 lane highway (though with at-grade intersections). The speed limit on U.S. 68 is 65 mph from just outside Bowling Green to Cadiz, the Trigg County seat. It is accessible from the north or south via U.S. 431 and from the southwest by U.S. 79. It is also accessible from the north by KY 79 and from the southeast by KY 100. Russellville has an airport on KY 100.

Get around[edit]


  • Carrico Park Square, at corner of S Main and W 4th Streets, has plaques regarding this sovereign movement with the Confederacy and other Civil War relics.
  • Old Jail, 278 W 4th St, now Logan County Archives and Genealogical Society.






Bed & Breakfasts[edit]


By phone[edit]

Most telephone numbers in Russellville (and the rest of Logan County) consist of +1 270 plus a seven-digit number, but the region is now served by an overlay complex of two area codes, with +1 364 being the second. A local or in-state telephone call now requires all 10 digits of the local number be dialed (omitting just the leading +1 from a local landline call).

Signage on many established businesses may still display the original seven-digit numbers; dial 270 before these if no area code is indicated.
