Osceola is quickly becoming the destination city for new families, travelers and businesses in Southern Iowa. As a growing community, this Clarke County city is an ideal location with business development opportunities for new and expanding companies to lay a foundation.
The E. Eddy Saylor Industrial Park is situated just south of US Highway 34 in Osceola, offering about 104 acres available for locating or expanding businesses. Shovel-ready with infrastructure already in place, available lots can accommodate nearly any industry for roughly one third of the price you’d pay in Des Moines.
Named in honor of Everett Eddy Saylor, a lifelong Osceola resident who founded Saylor Realty and was responsible for drawing industry to Osceola. Mr. Saylor’s passion for economic development led him to neighboring states to pitch Iowa to prospective industries.
Business development opportunities in E. Eddy Saylor Industrial Park include:
- Highway 34 access and less than one-half mile from the Interstate 35 interchange
- Only 34 miles south of West Des Moines
- Osceola is an Amtrak Train stop with a newly renovated Depot building
