In 1887, Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway built a branch line from Neva (3 miles west of Strong City) through Huscher to Superior, Nebraska. Huscher became a shipping point of some importance. In 1996, the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway merged with Burlington Northern Railroad and renamed to the current BNSF Railway. Most locals still refer to this railroad as the "Santa Fe".

Huscher had a post office from 1892 until it closed 1914. It was re-established in 1915, and finally closed again in 1934.
