Rush County Historical Society Online Collections

Access to Rush County Historical Society's collection inventories is now available online. For those interested in learning what objects we have in our collection, we are placing these inventories online in searchable databases. You are invited to browse our collections inventories before your visit to help you determine objects that will be of the most interest. Our Post Rock Museum collections contain some very unique specimens in history, archeology, geology and paleontology.

In addition, we are in process of digitizing and making many of our photographic collections available to search, view, and download or purchase. This will be an ongoing project as we have a large number of images in our collection.

Online Collections Inventories:

Please note, this project is still under development and collections inventories are presently available only in non-searchable PDF form. Searchable forms will be available in the near future.
