Rushville History Room
We are always adding to our Wall of Honor. While we work on completing the Wall of Honor database on this website feel free to stop in the Village Hall and gaze upon the wall and acknowledge all those in our community who have served in the military and protected our freedom.
In December 2006 work began on the conversion of the former fire truck bay in the village Hall. The Village Mayor and Board of Trustees had obtained grants for the conversion to include an archive storage room for Village records and a Village Historianís office and display room.
Much to the delight of village residents, the work was completed by volunteers under the direction of Tim King. The history room has been equipped with display cabinets, a work/conference table and interesting artifacts of Rushville through the generosity of local citizens and organizations.
The Rushville History Room includes a Wall of Honor to commemorate the local veterans who have served in the Armed Forces of the United States. The History Room contains a School Corner dedicated to local schools. It includes a photo of the Rushville High School taken in 1892. The main history room has Rushville history books containing copies of newspaper articles, photos, etc. for research purposes and displays of Village business and rural home life artifacts.
