A Bit of Clarification . . .
There are several groups that have Rush County historical information, pictures, and genealogical information on their Facebook pages. Their assistance and expertise is appreciated. However, the Rush County Historical Society operates separately from from these groups and is your source for gifting historic items to Rush County. Gifted items are cataloged and housed at the Gowdy House (Rush County Historical Society Museum). For further information concerning the museum, please see contact information below.
