A Rushville Historical Society?
It has come to my attention that Rushville does not have its own dedicated historical society. Apparently Bremen's historical society encompasses Rushville...but Bremen is not Rushville. And so I feel that it would be beneficial for those of us interested in the history of the village and the surrounding area have its own group to discuss history, share photos and stories, and just generate interest in local history. Such a group could also help to generate interest in local historical projects like the Winegardner Chapel restoration. What do you think? Would anyone be interested? I know a lot of people who have grown up here and lived here all their lives hold a lot of this local knowledge and it would be a shame if we cannot capture that history to share with others, even newcomers like myself. History once lost is gone forever. Here are a a few of the old postcards of Rushville I have collected recently that I thought would be worth sharing.
