Albert Alonzo Durham filed the first donation land claim here in 1850, naming the place Oswego after his New York home town. In 1864 John Corse Trullinger bought Durham's sawmill on Sucker Creek, and in 1866 this 87-acre portion of land, Trullinger filed the plat of Oswego in 1867 and named the streets for then notable local citizens and institutions, and also its founder, Durham.

Wilbur, Leonard, Ladd and Green Streets were named for men who played prominent roles in the development of Oswego's iron industry, Church Street was named for the Episcopal Church which had a boy's school in the area, and Furnace Street marked the road following the river leading to the iron works.
