Ossian is a small town community located in Wells, County, Indiana, with small town values. Northern Wells Community Schools is an excellent school system. There isnt much to do in the town, Bluffton is 7 miles or so away, and Fort Wayne is within 20 minutes.

Ossian is a wonderful small town to raise a family. Everyone is friendly. Small town events year round.
I can count the number of my city's publicly revieled crimes, of the past year, on one hand.
