Osceola County was named after Seminole Indian warrior Chief Osceola. The first white settler to the area was Nathan Hersey, a fur trapper, who arrived in 1840 and settled near the town and river that still bears his name. Reed City was plotted in 1870. Its first school was opened in 1872. By the late 1890s and early 1900s, the village had a population of about 2,690, and it officially became a city in 1933. Notable residents of Reed City include Thomas Schall, U.S. Senator from Minnesota, and George Bennard, American hymn composer and preacher best known for composing the famous hymn, "The Old Rugged Cross".
