1834 - 1904Asa Smith Bushnell, born in Rome, New York, settles in Springfield in 1850. After serving in the Civil War, Bushnell begins to work for a company partially owned by Benjamin Warder, eventually becoming a partner, now the Warder, Bushnell, and Glessner Company in the manufacture of farm implements. He ventures into the banking business and also became the president of the first gas company in Springfield. In the 1890's, he partners to build the electric interurban system. The excitement of politics lures Bushnell. In 1896, he is successful in his bid to become governor of Ohio winning a second term two years later ending in 1900. His wife Ellen becomes the first president of the local DAR chapter in Clark County.
