Cushman was a station Coos Bay Branch of the Southern Pacific Railroad (today the Coos Bay Rail Link), named for local residents C. C. and I. B. Cushman. It was a mile east of the community of Acme, but the railroad already had a station named Acme, so the name "Cushman" was chosen instead. The post office was moved from Acme in 1916 and renamed to match the station; it closed in 1961.
Cushman has a historic store that was built in 1889 and expanded in 1925, and there is a swing span railroad bridge across the river there. The bridge opened to allow ocean-going barges to reach a now-closed sawmill in Mapleton. In 1940, Cushman had a population of 145 and a full-service port. At that time the hills above the community produced Port Orford-cedar, a large evergreen coniferous tree native to the region, but by 1990, this resource was depleted and the port no longer served ocean-going vessels.
