History of Osgood Indiana
In 1854, the Ohio and Mississippi Railroad Company completed the railroad line through Ripley County.
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.
Buckeye street, the current main street, was a part of the plank road between Napoleon and Versailles. In 1898 it was piked with stone.
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.
