Rushing was a farming community on Richland Creek and the postal route from Purdon, fifteen miles southwest of Corsicana in southwestern Navarro County. It was settled sometime before 1900, and by 1906 it had a two-teacher school with an enrollment of 101. At its height around World War I, Rushing had a school, a church, a gin, and a store. In the early 1930s only a store remained, and in 1936 the community had an estimated population of twenty. By the mid-1930s Rushing was no longer shown on highway maps; sometime thereafter the community was abandoned. In 2000 the population was ten.
