Center Ossipee is located in Carroll County on the shores of Ossipee Lake. Railroad transportation began to influence Ossipee in 1854, when the Portsmouth, Great Falls, and Conway Railroad was completed as far as the village of Union. In 1870 the town raised almost $20,000 for the railroad to insure that its extension would run through Ossipee. The station opened in 1875, when the railroad reached Center Ossipee. The railroad opened Center Ossipee to the world, providing several-times-a-day access to nearby towns and rapid access to major cities. Rail service was the foundation of the economy for fifty years. In 1882 the railroad village was granted a new post office, called "Centerville" until 1909, and then "Mountainview." In 1926 it became "Center Ossipee," the office of that name in the lower village having closed in 1914. Passenger service stopped in the 1950's and freight service a few years later.
