South Russell

In Geauga County, Ohio, and part of Russell Township, South Russell is a village that is located 36 minutes by car southeast of Cleveland. Incorporated in 1923, South Russell is small in land area and population. It is an imperfectly shaped flat rectangle that covers 3.86 square miles and is home to an estimated 3,744 people.

South Russell is an affluent suburb of Cleveland, providing citizens with a rural or semi-rural feel. Almost everyone (94% of residents) owns their own homes, and their homes have a median value of $335,100. The people living in those homes are well-educated, as 69% of citizens possess a bachelor’s degree or higher, which is more than double the national average. Naturally, that higher education level has led the median household income to reach $119,457, which is more than $55,000 above the national average. The prosperous standing of many of the citizens of South Russell combined with the highly-rated school systems and low crime rate (95% below the state average) makes it an ideal place for raising a family.

The natural beauty of northeast Ohio is on full display in South Russell, as it has South Russell Village Park inside the village’s limits, and several other parks mere miles away. Just to the southwest lies Frohring Meadows, which features walking trails, a butterfly garden, and a convention center for events. To the northeast is the West Woods, which contains trails, a nature center, a wildlife feeding area, and hands-on displays for children. And finally, to the northwest is the Russell Uplands Preserve which contains walking trails through heavily wooded forests, a scenic lake, some signs detailing the area’s history, and due to its hidden nature, a peaceful reprieve from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
