Osawatomie-A City Rich In History
Osawatomie was established in 1854 and was the site of many battles over the issue of slavery. Osawatomie played a key role in the Civil War as the abolitionists settled in the area to help bring Kansas, as a free state, into the United States. John Brown, an avid abolitionist, played a pivotal role in the start of the Civil War and has deep roots in Osawatomie.
Osawatomie Showcases Its History For Residents and Visitors
History buffs will want to take the driving tour of Osawatomie to learn even more about the area and how it shaped the history of Osawatomie and our country.
Each June, Osawatomie hosts the annual John Brown Jamboree featuring art, music and food. In October, during Talking Tombstones, reenactors tell the story of the historians buried in the Oakwood Cemetery and remember the significant role each played in shaping Osawatomie.

The Mills House was built in 1902 and designed by the famous architect, George Barber. This 7,000 square foot Queen Anne style home was built for William M. Mills who opened the first successful oil well west of the Mississippi.
The Creamery Bridge is a Marsh arch triple-span bridge built in 1930 and crosses the Marais de Cygnes River at Eighth Street.
