History:  

RUSHFORD, settled in July 1853, organized May 11, 1858, was named on Christmas Day, 1854, by unanimous vote of the pioneer settlers, taking the name from Rush Creek here tributary to the Root River. The men and women so voting numbered nine, these being all the settlers at that date. "Rush creek was so called on account of the tall rushes that grew along its banks, where cattle and ponies could obtain a subsistence all winter." The city of Rushford, sections 11-14, founded in 1854, was named at the same time with the township. It was incorporated as a city on March 3, 1868, and often was called "the Trail City, on account of the intersection of several Indian foot paths." It has had a post office since 1856 and had a station of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad.
