The Town of Rushford was established in 1854. In 1869, the City of Rushford was formed as a separate area, removed from the Town. Later, the Town of Rushford was incorporated into a Village by a vote of the inhabitants, as provided for by a state law passed in March 1885. The Village of Rushford, surrounding Peterson and Rushford, Minn., became a city by a state law passed in 1973, which declared all villages to be cities. In May 1975, the name was officially changed to “City of Rushford Village.”
The City of Rushford Village has an area of 33.64 square miles nestled in the Root River Valley between stunning bluffs and state forest land. The Historic Bluff Country National Scenic Byway, State Highway 16, runs through Rushford Village, much of it near the Root River State Bike Trail and along the Root River, which is used extensively for fishing, tubing and canoeing, with several launch sites. Area snowmobile trails are popular in winter.
Rushford Village is a blend of agriculture, small manufacturing, and small businesses. Community center and shelter rentals are available, as well as camping facilities.
