Ossoweg (Osowek)

Ossoweg is a village just to the east of Schlachta. It seems to be another timber industry village with sandy soil and a variety of houses; probably now many of the people in Ossoweg work in Schlachta. In 1905 its population was 409 people. Here is a picture of a playground showing the conditon of the soil and then a view of the main street:

My interest in this village is that the Remus family of Schlachta later also resided in this village.

Here is a map of Ossoweg and Schlachta:
