About Us


Creelsboro is a small community tucked away in the Southwest corner of Russell County. It is bordered by the Cumberland River, that meanders from the Eastern Kentucky mountains flowing all the way to Nashville, TN. It has a small population of residents, but pays host to visitors wandering through it each year to enjoy the sights of the “Rockhouse” Natural Arch or to enjoy trout fishing on the river.

Creelsboro was once a busy river town that was incorporated in 1836. It was a major stop for steamboats on their way down the river to Nashville. It had a population of around 50 or so but had a bank, a school, three stores, a post office and a tavern.  Once the steamboat traffic slowed down, so did Creelsboro. It eventually became a ghost town in the 1900's.

But part of this ghost town is rising from the dead with the renovation with the Creelsboro Country Store. The Store had originally been owned and operated by William Higginbottom and later by JA Polston . Through meticulous care, the original framework of the store has been updated with some modern features while simultaneously keeping that original spirit alive.
