Mississippi County Museum

The Mississippi County Museum and Historical and Genealogical Society are housed in a 1902 and 1904 mercantile building.

Step through the door and step back into history, as the fixtures are original and the history of the county is preserved, taught and enjoyed.

Find out when the Mississippi River froze, the story of the first cars in Osceola, why the railroad was started, even when lighting came to Osceola, or how the drainage was done to make the farming even better.

Take a walking or driving tour of Osceola. Brochures are available at the museum-and learn about the rich history of the area, including music, art, military and politics.
