Recent Rushville

Welcome to Rushville, Nebraska
This is the #1 place on the web for old photos and postcards of Rushville!

A great deal of time, research and money has gone into obtaining and documenting these images. 
Please do not download or repost photos/text without permission!

I have plenty of OLD Rushville Photos, so I should include some more recent photos!  And recent means post-1960s.  And in color!!

Rushville Main Street
Centennial Parade 1985

Is that one of my classmates riding in the City Council car?
Nice car... reminds me of the '67 Mustang I had back in the '70s.

The posse heads down the street looking for someone to arrest!
Wish I'd have gotten a photo when one of them rode into the
Stockman's Bar to find a bad guy.

Corner Station (torn down sometime in the late 1980s or early 1990s)

Photo taken June 2012 of new addition to add elevator to the front
of the courthouse.  The original steps were torn out and the elevator
will allow access to the second floor (perhaps the basement as well).
