Historic Downtown Osceola
The value of a healthy Main street offers art, culture, unique businesses, and the pleasure of walking along lively streets rich in history. For Osceoleans, a sense of community is created by a place where locals still watch parades, meet for dinner or drinks, and enjoy an outdoor concert or movie in the park.
Receiving the prestigious National Main Street Community award by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Osceola’s Mainstreet buildings date from the 1880's when steamboats lined the river and fur traders, lumberjacks and early settlers built the core of downtown shopping, taverns and eateries. You won’t find malls to learn about our past, explore our culture, or discover our identity. Because the people who own and work in our downtown are every bit as unique and interesting as what they sell, you'll discover a small town adventure all its own. In fact, many Osceola merchants and artisans personally create or source the handcrafted items and often have an interesting story to share about your selection or a tale to tell about the history of the town. Come see why Osceola has been recognized as a Preserve America and Crown Community.
