Osborne, Kansas, is a small rural community of 1,400 residents located in the rolling hills of North Central Kansas, nestled along the south fork of the Solomon River. Osborne is the county seat of Osborne County, and both the City and the County proudly celebrated their historic sesquicentennial (150th) anniversaries in 2021! Osborne's Main Street has been growing, thriving, and changing over the past couple of years. Local residents organized a beautification committee, and due to their diligent efforts have added beautiful flowers, planters, benches & hanging baskets to the downtown. A mural was added in 2021 to the downtown Mini Park area by the fundraising efforts of a local non-profit group, adding another beautiful and inviting enhancement to our Main Street business district. A facade improvement grant program was created this year to assist local businesses in improving the curb appeal of their buildings to enhance the look of our Main Street area. If Osborne wins the $25,000 prize we will continue to offer grants through our facade improvement program. We would also like to add another mural to our downtown area, and purchase a sound system for small music venues and gatherings as well as to provide background music for downtown shoppers. We are small but mighty!! We are #osbornestrong!!
