A Great Gift Idea

Over the past few years, we have enjoyed

stories about the history of  Rush County

written by our Rush County Historian, 

John Wilson.  Many of these stories have

appeared in our Newsletters and local

newspapers.  Several people have enc-

ouraged John to compile these wonderful

stories into a book.  Now, after many long

hours of hard work, that book is now avail-

able for us to read and learn about our

rich Rush County history.

The Museum has books available at this

time.   Mocha Moose and Rushville Pharmacy 

carries this book as well.  Rush County Bicentennial, A Historic Perspective, 1822-2022  are $35.  This is a large, hard bound book featuring 30 stories with color photographs illustrations. The printing of this book was made possible by a generous gift from Lois Liggett.  Your donation by cash or check should be made payable to the Rush County Historical Society(tax is not applicable).  All proceeds from this book are being donated to the Rush County Historical Society.  So when you receive this book you not only help support your Rush County Historical Society, but also keep the stories of Rush County alive.
