Shawnee emerged out of the dust on high noon during
the land run September 22, 1891. Steady growth since the boom days has
transformed a primarily agricultural community into one with a
diversified economic base.
Our community offers a small town atmosphere with big city variety for all the comforts of home. From fast food to elegant fare, shopping for sports wear to ballroom gowns, simple low-cost rooms to full-blown suites, we're waiting to serve you in Shawnee.
Shawnee is home to Oklahoma Baptist University and Saint Gregory's University. Shawnee also offers Gordon Cooper Vocational School.
