Seniors Enjoy Historic Downtown

Located in historic downtown Broken Arrow, near the site of the original train depot, is the Broken Arrow Historical Society Museum. The revitalization of downtown Broken Arrow has been accelerated by the construction of a new Historical Museum. This revitalization project is turning old warehouses and unused buildings into professional office, loft, and artist spaces for the citizens of the city.


Broken Arrow is home to a host of locally inspired and run cultural attractions, including the Broken Arrow Community Playhouse. The Playhouse proudly boasts that it is only “1,487 miles off Broadway.” I wonder who actually figured out the mileage.

The Broken Arrow Performing Arts Center is the anchor of downtown arts in Broken Arrow, and is a three-year-old building that houses the full range of artistic expression.The Military History Museum is another major draw for many senior tourists.


The Chalk Art Festival is fun time in Broken Arrow as folks take over the local streets with their colored chalk.

If senior visitors enjoy older historic homes, the Stinchcomb Mansion is tops and a top tourist attraction is the Ray Harrell Nature Park.

So drive throuth the Green Country region of Oklahoma and stop in Broken Arrow.  You surely will enjoy the Okie Hospitality in Broken Arrow. jeb
