About Russell Lands POSITIONS FOR SUMMER JOBS WILL BE POSTED IN LATE FEBRUARY. PLEASE INQUIRE ONLY IF A JOB IS POSTED. THANK YOU.
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 create several hundred miles of shoreline within their beloved forest. The Russells could, even then, envision the recreational potential of the beautiful shoreline encompassing Lake Martin, and today they continue to acclaim the virtues of the more than 41,000 acres of deep blue water that surrounds the old Russell Forest. That place is Russell Lands On Lake Martin.
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 new 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), SpringHouse restaurant (www.springhouseatcrossroads.com), The Town Green and The Stables. Russell Marine (www.russellmarine.net) offers boating enthusiasts world-class sales and service through four Lake Martin locations, plus a Smith Lake dealership. Russell Do it and Home Décor Centers (www.russelldoitcenter.com) in nine locations make it easier for homeowners to build and personalize the homes in which they live.
In 1998, Russell Lands constructed the The Amp (Lake Martin Amphitheater) (www.theamponlakemartin.com) - a unique venue for celebrating culture and the creative arts. And the company continues to serve the community through Children's Harbor - the not-for-profit organization created by Russell Lands Chairman, Ben Russell - whose mission is to strengthen children and families through a variety of programs, services and good works.
