Some choose to live among concrete mountains, bumper to bumper traffic and city lights that never burn out. And then, there are the small-town residents who live where they can see a long way in all directions, where the sky goes on forever and where the stars are the lights that never burn out.
The City of Rushville has that ordered simplicity. It’s a place where history remains, but it’s still on the cusp of growth and technology. Running errands is a lunchtime pleasure, amenities are within walking distance, residents awaken to quiet mornings and say hello to the close-knit neighbors they look out for. The city’s unique character stands tall among the industry that powers the community.

Three major highways – State Road 44, State Road 3 and US 52 – intersect the city, making Rushville a “Crossroad of Indiana.” Rushville’s population is approximately 6,000 residents. City administration includes a mayor, a clerk-treasurer and a five-member city council. The city has a 12-member police department and 15-member full-time fire department, as well as a fully-staffed street and sanitation department, parks and recreation department and animal control office.
The city’s major industries include Copeland Corporation, the Trane Company and INTAT Precision Casting. Other small manufacturing firms enhance the economic structure of the community as well. Rushville has an additional 270 acres of “shovel ready” prime space available for industrial development on the north side of town.
The community also boasts 40 acres of beautifully maintained parks for individual relaxation and recreational enjoyment. In 2000, a $1.2 million dollar outdoor aquatic facility was added to the list of amenities for city residents to enjoy.
We continue to build strong ties locally, nationally and internationally through involvement in organizations such as the Rush County Chamber of Commerce, Indiana Association of Cities and Towns, Main Street USA, The Heart of Rushville, Rush County and the Rush County ECDC.
In addition, Rushville serves as Rush County’s seat of government and boasts one of the state’s most beautiful courthouses.
We hope that if you’re taking the time to look us up on the Web, you’ll stop by to visit and enjoy Rushville. You can be yourself in this small town and we believe you’ll like what you see.
