Welcome to Osceola, Nebraska!

Osceola is located in the center of Polk County, Nebraska, and has a population of about 900 people.

Osceola was founded in October 1871 by William Francis Kimmel and John Hopwood Mickey. Osceola received its name from Vinson Perry Davis, an early settler on the Davis Creek, which runs through Osceola. Davis felt it would be unique to say, "I moved from Osceola, Iowa, to Osceola, Nebraska."

In 1872 the first courthouse was completed on March 20. The first frame store was built in May, the post office building was built in June, and the first school house built of sod was completed in December.

The Methodist congregation was organized in 1872 and a wooden frame church was built in 1878. This was the first church building and congregation in Osceola.

The first newspaper was printed on August 27, 1873, and was called the Homesteader. On March 1, 1876, the name was changed to The Osceola Record, and in 1995 it became the Polk County News.

The drought years of 1893 to 1895 created untold hardships on many settlers. In 1895 Osceola was the victim of a destructive fire, which lasted for two hours and destroyed all but two buildings.

Osceola has the honor of being the home of three former Nebraska governors:  Albinus Nance, John Hopwood Mickey, and Ashton Shallenberger.

A new high school was built in 1975 with a new athletic complex completed in 1982.
