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.
