History needed of Rushford


Mon, May 14th, 2012
Posted in Rushford All

The Rushford-Peterson Independent School District received a grant from Minnesota Historical & Cultural Grants. The purpose of this grant is to evaluate its current school site, the historical Rushford elementary/high school building for its eligibility of placement onto the National Register of Historic Places. The school’s construction history dates from 1906 through 1970. Within those decades, three sections were added to the original 1906 building. Each section represents a significant phase in the schools’ history. The school district wishes to explore the historic significance of the building, studying the building’s role in the educational system of the community, how it has been used for other community activities, and how it exemplified national trends in educational development.

The outcome of the project will draw conclusive results as to the significance of the Rushford School Complex, judged against specified criteria needed to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Secondly, the research performed will serve to document the educational systems of Rushford and Rushford-Peterson, how the building has been used for other community activities, and how the complex exemplified national trends in educational development.

It is expected that the research will also gather information related to the continuous service the building has given to the community, including hosting political events, social events, humanitarian efforts, and city gatherings. The activities that occurred in the buildings or their influence on the community may help justify the significance of the building and its inclusion to the National Register of Historical Places.

The Designation Committee for Rushford Historical School Building is searching for information about the importance of the school building in the Rushford Community prior to consolidation with Peterson. Anyone who may have access to or have put together scrapbooks of the History of Rushford is asked to share that information with the committee.

The Designation Committee for Rushford Historical School Building members are: Jack O’Donnell, Herb Highum, Maynard LaFluer, Maynard Rustad, Anne Spartz, Chuck Ehler and Tammy Lindberg (Historical Grant Consultant). Please contact one of the committee members if you are willing to share information in regard to the history of Rushford (School) and the Rushford Area. You are al .....
