Our City of Roses
In the 1920s when Broken Arrow was first called The City of Roses, a local newspaper reported that almost every home “humble or aristocratic “ had a rose garden. Plant a Rose, a Rose Committee Event, encourages Broken Arrow homes & businesses to return to this beautiful part of our history.
