Preservation

As a proud partner with Main Street America, Main Street Iowa, and our Historic Preservation Commission, we have the resources and expertise to help unburden business owners of the costs of owning historic buildings and encouraging authentic restoration.

Business Support

Whether it's a small family-owned shop, medium sized business or large manufacturing facility, we strive to encourage positive community involvement, and provide information to help businesses thrive. Our "Meet Your Merchant" event, held on the courthouse lawn, provides a forum for business owners to meet the public.

Tourism

Three exits off I-35, U.S Highway 34 and the historic Jefferson Highway, perfectly position Osceola for tourism. We have a venue for activities of any size and type, from formal to rustic. OCMS hosts several events throughout the year to encourage community engagement and showcase our town.

Osceola At a Glance

Designated a Historic Commercial District in 2017, downtown Osceola is an eclectic mix of architecture styles and businesses surrounding a generous courtyard with plenty of green space for activities. Retail shops include antiques and consignments, modern funky and worn, flowers and appliances, full menu restaurants to specialty eateries, and professional services-dental and mental health. To top it off, our restored theater is an Art Deco style gem.

Historic Depot

Restored to it's original glory, our Historic Depot is a stop along the Amtrak route, and recognized in "The Great American Stations." The inside is as charming and welcoming as the outside. Security cameras overlook the large well-lit parking lot, and visitors have quick access to car rentals, local eateries and shopping.
