When you look at the facade of the Russell Theatre, each detail jumps out at you, the ceramic tile encasing the box office, the wrought iron handles of the double doors, all the way up to the urns topping the east and west towers of the buildings.

The only difference between this facade and the real facade of the historic theater is the size of the structure; everything else is replicated exactly, all the way down to the design of the tile floor of the vestibule.

The newest addition to the Kathleen Savage Browning Miniatures Collection at the Kentucky Gateway Museum Center has arrived and is now available for public viewing.

The Russell Theatre miniature joins two other historically significantly buildings to Maysville’s downtown: the Cox Building and the Bethel Baptist Church, which once stood on Fourth Street.
