Osgood is situated in northern Darke County and is in the Marion Local School District. State Routes 705 and 716 intersect the town.

Osgood was named after Captain Osgood, its first settler. In 1881, Anne Brewer transferred seventy acres of land to Osgood. Three years later, on August 6, 1883, the town was incorporated. Around the same time the Cincinnati-Hamilton and Dayton Railroad was built through the town, where the present day State Route 716 is located. The town was developed as a railroad depot. The depot and a water tower were completed in 1891.

The railroad was the major reason for growth of the town. Early businesses began to flourish. Among them were a grain elevator, barber shop, general store, hardware store, blackmith shop, saloon, electrician shop, shoemaker, livery stable, contractor, ditcher, grocer, sawmill, scrap yard, tile yard, piano store, bank, livestock yard and a hotel. The early settlers were mainly of German and French decent. Many of the early settlers were farmers.

The town was served by several churches; The St. Nicholas Catholic Church, The Church of God and The Osgood Christian Church. A town hall was used for a jail, a fire house, meetings, dances and medicine shows.
