RUSHVILLE COMMUNITY & HISTORY
"We celebrate the past to awaken the future"
Founded by Joseph Turner in 1808, Rushville is one of the earliest settlements in Fairfield County and stands along the original Zane's Trace road constructed by Colonel Ebenezer Zane in 1797. Zane's Trace ran from Wheeling, WV to Maysville, KY and was the first road into Ohio and lead to the establishment of the first towns in the interior of the state. Because of its location along this route Rushville became a successful commercial area which featured several inns, taverns, and merchant shops. Rushville was also a stop on the Underground Railroad in the years preceding the Civil War. Several prominent abolitionists lived in the village including Dr. Simon Hyde, the Rev. William Hanby and his son, composer Benjamin Hanby.
Much of the Village of Rushville was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980 as the Rushville National Historic District.
