Osborne Main Street

Osborne Main Street

Osborne, KS

Our beautiful rural community is situated in the rolling hills of North Central Kansas along the south fork of the Solomon River. It is the geodetic center of North America, where all maps start at zero!! You might say it's a great place to get centered!! Like so many communities, our downtown has suffered from the loss of businesses over the years, and our Main Street area is populated with several vacant buildings. With the recent addition of a few younger business owners to our Main Street, a revitalization effort has begun! We also have a group of community volunteers who chose to work on our Main Street's "first impression" look to visitors. This group has accomplished many improvements to our downtown area. Spring-like weather will soon allow the volunteers to re-fill their barrel planters and hanging baskets with fresh flowers that will adorn our Main Street area. The new beautiful benches they purchased last year are a welcoming touch to our downtown area year-round. We are making great strides towards the revitalization of Osborne's Main Street! Many projects are currently in the planning stages to bring new life to our downtown area with the hope of filling our vacant buildings. We rely on grant funding for a lot of our projects, and winning the "America's Main Street" award would allow us to not only purchase supplies for our current projects, but we could also create a matching loan fund available to business owners to assist them with fa├žade or signage improvement as well. Help us help our community! Please vote for Osborne!!
