Cushing is a very small town located in the northwestern part of Wisconsin. It is
in Polk County. The
population of Cushing is around 200 people.
Historically, the Cushing area has been populated with dairy farmers. Now, there
is a mixture of factory workers, professionals, service workers, and others. There
are quite a few residents that make the 50-80 mile commute to the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St.
Paul, MN) area for work.
The area around Cushing is quite scenic with rolling hills, hardwood trees, and
open farm land. Several lakes and rivers are scattered throughout the area for fishing
Cushing is still real small, but its proximity to the Twin Cities, recent addition
of city sewer, and possible development of subdivisions within a few miles of town
signal a period of growth coming for Cushing.

years. Cushing Wisconsin had an official web site that had more current information.
But as of 2012, it appears that site is no longer available.
