The Village of Russia is home to members of a community that prides itself on a strong work ethic and a desire to give back to the community in which they live. Nearly all of the industry in the village was built from the ground up by village residents who take pride in their homes, school and the facilities provided by their local government. The village offers all the necessary amenities for living, working and building a business within the community including a full complement of utility and public safety services and a willingness by village government to provide the best assistance possible. We encourage you to explore the possibilities of living and investing in our community.
