526 Market Street is significant for its connection to and prominent role in the commercial history of Osage City. It is one of the best remaining structures of the period when money from the coal boom of the late 1800s flowed through Osage City and the surrounding area, fueling a surge in population and a rush to erect buildings with architecture to match the city’s newfound prosperity. Its lower floor is divided into two storefronts, with a staircase that ascends to the second floor located within the 526 storefront. The storefront is currently used as an office/co-working space, the rear of the building has a dock and storage space as well as a full catering space that is not currently in service. 528 is the second storefront which is currently leased as a professional office space. There is a large hand crafted lath & plaster dome with a hand painted mural centered within the space, show posters line the back walls, providing a time capsule of the many stage productions that occurred in this building. The upper level back door gives access to an outdoor deck that boasts views of Santa Fe Park, the Train Museum and the Osage City water tower. Great things happening in Osage City!
