Shawnee the Redbud City
Tom Terry, Master Gardener
Anyone driving around town would agree that Shawnee still qualifies as the "Redbud City of Oklahoma." This designation was adopted by the Shawnee City Council on April 9, 1940 and was confirmed with a resolution by the Oklahoma Legislature that was signed by Oklahoma Governor Leon Phillips on February 19, 1941.
The Shawnee Council of Garden Clubs was responsible for this recognition. Beginning in the late 1930s, club members ordered thousands of bar-root Eastern Redbud trees and sold them to the public for twenty-five cents each. They were planted at homes, churches, schools and public parks. The park receiving the most Redbud trees was named Redbud Park. It is in the 1900 block of Broadway and extends to Beard Street.
Sixty years later the Shawnee Chamber of Commerce Beautification Committee provided fifty Oklahoma Redbud trees to be planted in city parks.
