HISTORY of OSGOOD

snowosgood.jpg

 In 1854, the Ohio and Mississippi Railroad Company completed the railroad line through Ripley County.
 
In 1856, George W. Cochran bought the land from Henry Papet and began laying out a town between Napoleon and Versailles. A plank road was built from oak boards between the towns.
 
The initial town began on the south side of the railroad.The town was named after Mr. A.L. Osgood, a chief engineer for the Ohio and Mississippi Railroad who was in charge of the surveying crew.
 
In 1878 Osgood became an incorporated town.
 
Buckeye street, the current main street, was a part of the plank road between Napoleon and Versailles. In 1898 it was piked with stone.
 
In 1914 and 1915 - 1200 feet of Buckeye Street was paved with brick for a total cost of $8,858.80.
 
Years later the brick on Buckeye was covered by the State Highway Department. However, Ripley Street remains a brick street and was newly refurbished during the end of 1993.
