The City of Rushford Village is nestled in the Root River Valley between bluffs and State Forest Land. 33 miles square, Rushford Village actually surrounds the two cities of Peterson and Rushford Minnesota. The Historic Bluff Country National Scenic By-Way (State Hwy 16) runs East and West through Rushford Village, much of it near the Root River State (bike) Trail and along the Root River. The Root River is used extensively for fishing, tubing, and canoeing with several launch sites. Area Snowmobile Trails are popular in the winter. Much of Rushford Village is rolling farmlands with some small manufacturing, many small businesses and in-home businesses.
