Posted on May 3, 2023 1:45 PM


Wednesday, the Logan County Chamber of Commerce entered into an agreement with Deborah Hirsch on behalf of the Sadie Nauy Charitable Foundation to lease the two vacant lots at the corners of East Fourth Street and Main Street located at 102 N Main Street and 103 S Main Street in Russellville.

The Chamber will take responsibility for the lots during the duration of the lease and will utilize the property for events in downtown Russellville.

In the coming weeks, the walls surrounding the lots will be removed and dirt will be brought in to make the areas green spaces. The parcels will remain for sale throughout the lease agreement.

Chamber Executive Director Polly Steenbergen said in making the announcement, “It is our sincere hope that the City of Russellville and County of Logan, and its residents, will benefit from this agreement by offering substantial green spaces during our summer concert events and the Logan County Tobacco & Heritage Festival.’

The Logan County Chamber of Commerce will hold complete control for the usage of the properties unless explicitly indicated otherwise by the Chamber of Commerce.

Steenbergen added, “We would like to thank the Sadie Nauy Charitable Foundation and Deborah Hirsch for their generosity and willingness to work together in this project. We look forward to continuing this partnership in the future.”
