About Russell Lands On Lake Martin: In 1834, Russell family settlers from England fell in love with a tract of land in central Alabama. The Russells’ love for the land continued throughout the years. Nearly 100 years ago, news came of a huge new lake that would soon meander deep into their beloved forest. The Russells could envision the hundreds of miles of beautiful shoreline encompassing Lake Martin and today they continue to brag about the 44,000 acres of deep blue water that surrounds the old Russell Forest. That place is Russell Lands On Lake Martin (RussellLandsOnLakeMartin.com).
The company is one of uncommon vision, diversity and commitment to community - whose endeavors go beyond creating fine lake homes and communities. Willow Point Golf and Country Club (www.willowpoint.com), owned and operated by Russell Lands, is one of the most revered private clubs in Alabama and considered to have the “most beautiful lakeside golf course” in the country. Russell Crossroads, the central town hub of Russell Lands On Lake Martin’s 25,000 acres of land holdings, is designed to reflect the agrarian era with period architecture of the 1920s promoting “walkability” of the town. Today, the town consists of the Discovery Center, Catherine’s Market (www.catherinesatcrossroads.com) and SpringHouse restaurant (www.springhouseatcrossroads.com) and The Stables. Kowaliga Restaurant (www.kowaligarestaurant.com), the newest business, opened Spring 2013 offers family friendly lakeside dining.
