Osage Beach, MO – The City will celebrate it’s 60th year of incorporation on May 22!

In 1959 the City incorporated and only after a brief, rocky start has progressed in many ways over the last century. Once known as the town of Zebra, Osage Beach came to be in 1929 with the building of Bagnell Dam and is still considered the ‘Heart of the Lake of the Ozarks’! We have extended our boundaries, our services, and tourism has grown exponentially!

On Wednesday, May 22, 2019, please join us at City Hall for a celebration social from 4:30 PM – 7:00 PM! We will be happy to give you a tour of City Hall, come by and converse with your elected officials and staff and enjoy some refreshments.
