One of the reasons we bought our little home in the small town of Coweta in 1998, after Mickey retired in 1997 and we sold our large home in Tulsa, is that while traveling in our 5th wheel we had fallen in love with the many small towns we visited.

There is such a personal touch and a degree of caring in a small town that seems to get lost in the big metropolitan settings.

Just such a personal touch is this memorial in a small little area on the main downtown street of Coweta.  Which by the way is not named Main Street but Broadway!!

 Entrance to this small area
US Flag & MIA (Missing in Action) flag flying on the tall flagpole.
 The large permanent bolder that was placed here on June 14, 2011.

 You can see the 5 branches of Military honored on this boulder.

Another view looking in to the side of the oval arch entry.  Both sides have these wrought iron fencing and dedicated park benches.

The 3 pictures above honor 3 Coweta service men who gave their lives for our country in the recent war. 

This is hard to read but it shows this entire memorial display was provided, paid for & dedicated by Rolling Thunder (a local motorcycle club) on 14 June 2007.

Yes, we are proud of the little community of Coweta, OK where we are blessed to make our home.

Susan - I learned something new about you today. I thought you and Mickey had always lived in Coweta, because of the way you talk about it. I know you love it! The memorial you showed is so special. I especially like that boulder. I live in a small town too and wouldn't want it any other way!

I totally agree, Susan. I love, love, love living here. 1200 people, can walk the streets safely, everyone so friendly. But close to the city for groceries etc.

We love the small towns too, when we go around our country we try to take the route with the most small towns in stead of the free ways (that is not free by the way it is tolled.)

I love the saying on the boulder. What a lovely spot. I live in what was a small town when my folks moved here. It still has a small town feel in a lot of ways, but too many people have discovered it!

Small towns are simply the best!

I love to visit small towns as well. I enjoy visiting some of the small, individually owned shops and mom and pop resturants. Perhaps some day we might have the opportunity to visit coweta!
