KURT C. RUSS served as Executive Director of the Mountain Valley Preservation Alliance, Inc. for almost two years and continues as a senior member of the Board of Directors. He formerly served as director of Washington and Lee University’s Laboratory of Anthropology. After graduation from Washington and Lee University, Russ was awarded the year-long Liberty Hall Scholar fellowship. He subsequently completed his graduate work at the University of Tennessee where he received the prestigious Hilton A. Smith University fellowship. Russ, an historical archaeologist, has more than 30 years of experience in archeology, material culture/decorative arts research and historic preservation. He has directed excavations of historical potteries in Virginia as well as investigations of domestic farmsteads, early educational institutions, and iron mining and manufacturing sites. Under the auspices of his consulting firm, Virginia Heritage Resources Group, he has completed research and investigations for a variety of local, state and federal agencies. Bringing an anthropological perspective to his collecting interests in 19th-century Virginia decorative arts, Russ has served as guest curator for exhibits at the Virginia Historical Society, Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts and the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley. In addition to a prolific list of archaeologically-related publications, two of his most recent publications focus on Virginia ceramics and furniture. Published in Ceramics in America, “The Remarkable 19th-Century Stoneware of Virginia’s Lower James River Valley,” and coauthored with several colleagues, takes his research interest in Shenandoah Valley pottery to the James River Valley; while, an article in American Furniture with Jeffrey S. Evans details the identification of one of the earliest and most significant schools of safe furniture production in the Shenandoah Valley entitled, “The Kahle-Henson School of Punched-Tin Paneled Furniture from Lexington, Virginia, ca. 1819-1831.” Finally a book co-authored with Jeffrey S. Evans (Russ’s partner in The Virginia Safe Project) and growing out of a current exhibit on Virginia Safes at the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley is expected to be published later this year.

Kurt was first licensed as a real estate agent in 1979 and has most recently worked with Ruth Anne Herring (1996-2010) and Greg Mays (2010-2016) selling residential real estate with an emphasis on historic properties as well as investment and commercial properties. He and his wife, Linda, reside on a late eighteenth-century farm which they have restored. Known locally as Fruit Hill, the historic site, is associated with the Grigsby family and has a Federal-period residence and associated dependencies, including a rare Scandinavian-influenced corn crib, and double-pen, log slave cabin. There they have a small cattle operation raising polled Hereford cattle.
