Welcome to Rushville, IN!

Welcome to the City of Rushville’s website. We’re glad you’re here!

Rushville is a rural Indiana city that refuses to be defined by outside expectations. A city that is focusing on what we can do, not what we can’t. It isn’t just a city with small-town charm and a close-knit community. It is a city in the midst of growth with exceptional schools; a new business park to lay the foundation for future jobs and opportunities; and a state-of-the-art hospital helping those in the city and beyond.

You can call it revitalization, rejuvenation or even redefinition. We call it just the start. Rushville is a city having fun, thinking differently and being independent. The people of Rushville know how to take care of their own and work together. Community pride, aggressive planning and a strong team have given Rushville the confidence and tools necessary to succeed in tomorrow’s world.

Rushville is truly leading the way in rural Indiana. In 2016, our community was officially named a Stellar Community by the State of Indiana, one of just twelve communities to receive this honor. This coveted recognition does not happen without proper planning, collaboration, determination and hard work.

Rushville is experiencing rejuvenation. This sense of rebirth only adds to a city and county that has an intense sense of community. It’s a place where people feel good about raising their family and where safety is a priority; it’s a place “where everyone knows your name.”

My goal is to re-energize the community while paying proper respects to our wonderfully rich heritage. To do this, my administration needs to nurture an economic development environment that is conducive to job creation, encourages continuing education and drives a new housing market. We need to make sure quality of life issues are being addressed to the satisfaction of existing residents while also attracting new people and businesses to our community.

We offer top-notch city services to all residents. City leaders are proactive, progressive, energetic and dedicated to making Rushville the place that you would be happy to call home, if you don’t already.

I encourage you to visit us and form your own opinion. I’m certain you will be impressed with what you see!

We know the future is bright for Rushville because the past burns strong and the present is already Stellar.
