History:  

RUSHMORE, a city in section 19 of Dewald Township, platted in July 1878, on the Sioux Falls branch of the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha Railroad, bears the name of its pioneer merchant, S. M. Rushmore. It was incorporated March 27, 1900. The city was first called Miller Station when the Worthington and Sioux Falls Railroad was completed in 1876 in honor of former Gov. Stephen Miller; when the post office was established in 1878, the name was changed to Rushmore.
