Sitting squarely in the crosshairs of I-35, Highway 34 and Highway 69, Osceola is the place to explore. Just off I-35 at the Clay Street Exit, Revelton Distilling Company commands attention. Rob and Christi Taylor built the multi-million-dollar operation by following a green business plan and cultivating partnerships. Born and raised in Iowa, Revelton is committed to making “grain to glass” spirits using local Iowa based grains and ingredients as much as possible. It’s a must stop for their award-winning spirits! Historic Downtown Changes on the Horizon. The City of Osceola has been awarded a Community Development Block Grant to enhance and restore the facades on nine downtown buildings. This means throughout 2024 downtown will be a buzz of construction as contractors work to complete this project with an ending result that will impact Historic Osceola’s downtown for decades!
