Revved up for Russellville

Revved up for Russellville

December 17th, 2012 in News

Jim and Eve Campbell have been leading volunteers for the Russellville Frog Leg Festival and Engine Show for many years and are focused now on the town's 175th anniversary celebration.

She grew up across the street from her grandparents and walked the half block to school or to the park.

Eve Campbell has lived her entire life in Russellville, just as several generations before her have done.

"I like living there, the smallness and the idea of a close community," Eve Campbell said.

Although her husband Jim moved to Russellville in his youth, he also can trace his ancestors several generations back in the community.

Jim's grandfather was the town's blacksmith. Campbell has a little forge and a few tools. His dream is to dabble at blacksmithing some day.
