Osceola Began As A Simple Trading Post

Osceola, Missouri, began life as a simple trading post in the 1830s. Today, it is the seat of St. Clair County, although much transpired between then and now.

Prior to the Civil War, Osceola was the third-largest community in the state. Our community was then sacked and burned during the war, an event that inspired the famous film “The Outlaw Josey Wales.” 

After the attack, the citizens rebuilt during the 1870s and 1880s, constructing many buildings that are still in use today. Such famous and infamous characters as Jesse James and the Younger brothers are said to have roamed Osceola and stayed at the landmark Old Commercial Hotel. 

If you need an escape from your daily life, come down to Optimist Park to relax. Our local park is the home of the Osceola Muncipal Swimming Pool as well as numerous shelter houses that are available for event rental.
