Osierfield holds many dear memories for the people who lived and worked here. I’ve shared some of them here.
Randy Sneed writes: I remember so well coming of age in Osierfield, a time when simple things was a way of life, when life was about being a part of Osierfield. The work was hard, the days were long and the summers was hotter than hot. Each day we would stop by Nell Grace’s store for a soda or talk with Nob at the service station. Many of my friends are no longer with us, but every time I find myself passing through Osierfield I can hear their voices and see all their faces. Thinking of Osierfield makes me smile.
Tammy Burden Mays: My Aunt Nelle Grace & Uncle Horace Burden had the store in Osierfield for many years. Then built the tire/service station and round house across the street. So interesting to read these posts from people that knew them. I would love to hear from some of you.
Donna Griffin: Special breaks from the hot July/August tobacco croppings were the trips to Osierfield where Ms. Madie put “it” (cokes, Dr. Pepper, crackers, honey buns, moon pies, peanuts…) on the ticket.
