History & History Related Items

When the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad began to build a branch line from Central City to Burwell in 1887, the town of Cushing also began to be formed. A small post office was located about a mile from the present town site. Once the railroad came through, a depot was built and with the depot came much building activity. Once more business, homes and buildings were opened, the post office also moved into town. The land for the new village was received from W.S. and Sarah Cushing Freeman. It was after this family that the town name of Cushing was chosen.
