Nice, quiet small town. I graduated from high school here in May of 2018. I have been living in Rushville since 2010 when I started attending fifth grade there. Everyone was very accommodating, and I made friends pretty quick. The population of Rushville was about 6,000, I believe. The town has a beautiful town square that is decorated with the holiday at that time.

This is my home! I have lived here my whole life! I love it! I graduated High school here. I went to college here. Now my daughter can grow up here. It's awesome!
The cops don't really have much to do daily and so they tend to fart around and pull over a lot of traffic. Some are nice, but all have a superiority complex.

A few weeks ago, a person I know had their back window SHOT OUT by a Rushville cop because they made a bad choice and tried to drive AWAY from a stop after their name and plates were already taken. Could have been handled way better. Cop got fired.

No real crime happens in Rushville really except petty theft and underage drinking.
