Osage is an Indian name for “on top of the world”. Named for the oil regions in Oklahoma, the first oil well was drilled here in 1890. Later when a gusher well was drilled in 1920 the tiny flag stop community along the railroad became a booming oil town with a refinery and a population of 1,500 in less than a year.
