On May 22nd, 2009 Osage Beach celebrated its 50th anniversary as an incorporated City.
... a bit of history.
As the United States expanded settlers started showing up in what is now the city of Osage Beach in the 1830's. They followed the river tributaries into what was initially Kinderhook County before its name changed in the mid 1800's to Camden County. In 1886 a post office was established where the Glaize and Osage river converge. As time went on people living in this area, Shawnee Bend, Turkey Bend, what is currently Lake of the Ozarks State Park and the Osage River bottom started to say they were from Zebra. With the building of Bagnell Dam in 1929-1931, the flooding of Lake of the Ozarks wiped out the town of Zebra. The Zebra post office prior to the flooding was moved to another building on the top of the nearest bluff. Some of the former Zebra residents moved to change the post office designation to Osage Beach in 1935 and for 20 years people decided if they wanted to receive mail there.
The idea of incorporating the town of Osage Beach, was neither a wide-spread nor well supported idea. By the end of 1958 a group of citizens began to organize toward the incorporation of Osage Beach. The increasing tourism had started to affect the local politics... The reason for incorporation came from the need for a city-wide vote in order to have liquor-by-the-drink. Accoding to state laws, locals could NOT vote to sell liquor in this manner. On May 22, 1959 Osage Beach was officially born as a fourth class city. After incorporation citizens disputed and there was a legal battle with a petition filed for disincorporation of the city, which ended in 1960 and Osage Beach, with its water font real estate began its residential and commercial legacy of growth and development in the "Heart of Lake of the Ozarks".
The city of Osage Beach was platted in 1928, by real estate developers who sold real estate even before Bagnell Dam and Lake of the Ozarks was
The City of Osage Beach got the "beach" part of its name, because of a man-made sand beach on the banks
of the Osage
River. This sand beach no longer exists due to Bagnell Dam being completed, the water that is retained by the dam flooded the sand beach. Two small
towns, Zebra and Damsel
existed here originally next to the Osage River. Zebra was named for the striped appearance of nearby bluffs. The town of Damsel was located just
west of the present day highway 54 and State Route KK. As the area developed both towns were
incorporated into Osage Beach. Today approximately one half of the city of Osage Beach is located on the east side of the Grand Glaze Bridge and the
other half is on the west side.
