Bader (Osceola)

It is situated in the S. E. ¼ of the S. W. ¼ of section 2, and was surveyed and platted August 5th, 1870, by J. Stumm, Deputy County Surveyor, for Samuel Fowler.  The name of the post-office is Baders.  A neat frame church of the Christian denomination, graces the village, and a commodious and well built school-house shows that the people are not unmindful of the important matter of education.
