Osceola is located in Mississippi County southwest of Blytheville between Burdette and Wilson along Hwy 61 on the banks of the Mississippi River on the Tennessee boarder.

The population estimate for July 1, 1998 was 8,188, a decrease of 977 since 1990.

Established in 1837, Osceola was originally named Plum Point, and that is how it is referred to in the writings of Mark Twain. It was the first and is now one of two county seats in Mississippi County.

The week after Thanksgiving, this town comes to life with the Winter Festival and the lighting of the historic County Court House. Osceola is also a sportman's dream. It is located near some of the most plentiful lakes, streams, and rivers in all of Arkansas. Hunting is very productive in the St. Francis Wildlife Management Area.

There are five state parks in the Osceola area that offer a variety of activities: Crowley's Ridge State Park, Hampson Museum State Park, Herman Davis State Park, Lake Frierson State Park and Lake Poinsett State Park.
