Ozawkie is a city in Jefferson County, Kansas, United States. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 645.[6] It is part of the Topeka, Kansas Metropolitan Statistical Area. Located adjacent to Perry Lake, Ozawkie formerly existed in a different location but was relocated prior to the reservoir's construction.[7]

History[edit]

It was originally named Osawkee and became Jefferson County's original County Seat in 1855. Later, Oskaloosa became the County Seat.

In 1930, there were rumors the US Army Corps of Engeinners building a Dam and relocation would be required. However, it wasn't until 1954 that the Perry Dam Project was approved. Since Ozawkie wasn't incorporated, the US Government would not relocate it. Citizens came together to form a non-profit organization to help move Ozawkie. In 1966, Ozawkie was relocated to higher ground west of the original town site and a Water Tower, School and 26 homes were built.

In 1967, Ozawkie was incorporated.[8]
