In 1846 Rusk was selected as the seat of Cherokee County even though only one family lived in the town. The settlement was named after Thomas Jefferson Rusk, a signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence. The town was the birthplace of James S. Hogg and Thomas M. Campbell, the state's first two native-born governors. Rusk Park is 3 miles west on US 84.
