Around the Museum

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 News-

letters and local newspapers.  Several people have encouraged

John to compile these wonderful stories into a book.  Now, after

many long hours of hard work, that book is now available for

us to read and learn about our rich Rush County history.

The Museum has books available at this time.   Mocha Moose

(downtown) 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.
