Russell County

History

Russell County was formed in 1832 from former Creek Indian territory. It is located in the south-central eastern part of the state in the Southeastern Plains Region. Russell is bordered by the Alabama counties of Barbour, Bullock, Macon and Lee, and the  Georgia counties of Muscogee and Stewart. The first county seat was first in Girard, then Seale, and since the 1930s in Phenix City. Other towns of note include Fort Mitchell and Hurtsboro. Phenix City is across the Chattahoochee River from Columbus, Georgia and is 80 miles east of Montgomery.
