Rusk Overview

Rusk is a small town with most services on US 69 south of Jacksonville. There is much history and a few nice museums to be seen. Nearby Rusk is the Texas State Railroad still open for rides.
Rusk, Texas was named by the Republic of Texas after Thomas Jefferson Rusk. I don't like it, but the "Rusk State Hospital", really a prison, was named after a great hero of the Republic of Texas.
