    Veterans Memorial, Pawnee

    Like most county seats in Oklahoma and the United States, the courthouse grounds offer a Veterans Memorial to remember those lives lost in the cause of their country. Pawnee may have sent soldiers to faraway lands as early as the Spanish-American War, but by far the list of the fallen is longest for WWII.

    The Pawnee Chief

    The Pawnee Chief

    Not listed on the National Register, the local newspaper has issued from a native stone building on the public square since the inception of Pawnee, but the present building was only built in 1941, the same year the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. Many local newspapers have since folded or been bought by larger publishers in nearby larger towns, but not so with the Pawnee Chief.

    Pawnee County Courthouse

    relief, Pawnee County Courthouse

    Like the courthouses in Perry, Stillwater, and Bartlesville (you see where I'm headed already, don't you?), the Pawnee County Courthouse is likewise listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Such a listing is common for government buildings in the county seats, but to make matters worse, the courthouse in Pawnee is not by itself worthy of second notice or enduring consideration. Composed of native stone on a rectangular pattern (like some kind of giant sepulcher), the courthouse is ugly but functional. Only the chiseled faces of pioneers and Indians on its exterior are worth much of your attention, unless you have a parking ticket in your hands.

    Arkansas Valley State Bank

    entrance, Arkansas Valley State Bank

    We're about to go to the well once too often. Like Perry, Morrison, Guthrie and other towns, Pawnee features a historic bank on the corner of its public square. Now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Arkansas Valley State Bank no longer serves its original function, but rather thrives as a kind of convenience store, but all the while the incoming and outgoing shoppers will pass beneath the mannikin of a Pawnee Indian looking down from the second floor window over the entrance.
