According to The North Carolina Gazetteer, the Brunswick County community’s name comes from the nearby plantation of the Russell family. Daniel L. Russell (1845-1908), the local judge and political leader who was governor of North Carolina from 1897 to 1901, was born there. Russell was the last Republican to serve as North Carolina’s chief executive until the election of James Holshouser in 1972.
