Russell County, which got its name from Col. Gilbert C. Russell, was created on December 18, 1832. Its county seat is Phenix City and, as of the year 2000, this county’s total population is 49,756.
This county is known to be one of the best places for families to live in, mostly due to the good standard of living that it offers, yet, behind that, a disturbing picture of worsening drug addiction badly affects the county. Effects of drug addiction are causing an increase in violent crime, particularly sexual offenses.
