Osterhagen was mentioned together with the church for the first time in 1257. The villlage was originally designed ringlike around the church. The present St. Martins-church was built in the years 1766/1767. But the 30m high church tower was finished in its present form in the year 1860 only.

The St. Martins-house, a community centre in Osterhagen since 1965, was built as a school in 1897.
