The Kentucky Gateway Museum Center is home to three dynamic collections: The Genealogical and Historic Research Library, The Regional History Museum and the Kathleen Savage Browning Miniature Collection. Each bring the stories of the region in fascinating focus.
Today, as part of the growing trend of downtown revitalization, many theaters that stood dormant for years are finding new life as performing arts and community centers and others as motion picture venues. Fortunately, the Russell Theatre is also following this trend. In 1995, the building's deteriorating state caught the attention of concerned citizens who rallied to preserve the structure. The Russell Theatre Corporation was formed and is well on its way to reopening the theater and restoring it to its rightful place in the community's entertainment and tourism industry.
