Pawnee - a friendly little town with a proud past and a bright future of renewed spirit and enthusiasm. The splendor of the old west - "Cowboys and Indians" are still very much alive today. The magnificent old buildings stand today as monuments of a time gone by. The historical pioneer days are waiting to be rediscovered. The community is blessed with the best of churches, museums, many fine dining establishments, unique shops ... the year starts with celebrations and continues throughout the spring, summer, and fall, and ends with the "Festival of Lights" at Christmas ... and countdown to the New Year with the Courthouse Square Ball Drop. A nice place to relax .. A friendly place to live...A fun place to visit... Come and visit...

"Pawnee -The Place I Call Home"
Do you want to know what it’s really like to live in and run a business in rural Oklahoma? Well, alrighty then… let’s just sit on the front porch and talk about it. And, since I’m a little OCD, I’ll need a check list!
1. Great people live all around me.
2. No traffic issues. Except for the occasional farm tractor whose driver will gladly pull over and waive you around him. Plus, it gives you an opportunity to count the cattle in the pasture. You never know when you will need to report that a calf is out.
3. It’s not Suburbia. We aren’t all alike and contrary to some Metropolitan beliefs, there is intelligent life out here.
4. Your banker actually knows your name, shops in your store and wants you to be successful.
5. Your children receive a quality education. True, there may not be as many subject offerings on site in a small rural school, but I never thought the school was responsible for all of my children’s education. I kinda think as a parent, some of that fell on my shoulders. We are pretty proud of our alumni and if you want a list of their accomplishments, we’ll be happy to share.
6. Something around here makes me smile almost everyday. It might be as simple as observing a wave of fireflies during my pre-dawn walk at the lake or chuckling when the vegetable aisle sign at the local grocery store just says “corn”. (BTW, it says vegetables now). And yes, sometimes change bothers even me!
