Bosna History.

Bosna: Bosna is located on Section 34, Township 13, and Range 24. A post office was established at Bosna on May 24, 1880, and Frank W. Zeman was the first postmaster. The post office was located in, a small house near the Bosna school house. Bosna was just a district, and, the central meeting place was at the Bosna schoolhouse. When there were quite a few people living in the area, "box suppers" were held, which was one of the few social activities of the community. The Bosna post office closed on August 15, 1921. Today nothing remains of Bosna, but the prairie and a few scattered farm homes.
