William Oscar Osgood and his wife, Clara Rheams, owned and ran the Osgood General Merchandise Store on this corner for most of the first half of the 20th century, until it changed hands in 1943. The store was the center of a thriving community long known as Osgood Corner, and for several decades the local polling place was named Osgood Corner Precinct.
