SHAWNEE, a city of Pottawatomie county, Oklahoma, U.S.A., on the North Fork of the Canadian river, about 38 m.
Shawnee was first settled in 1895 and was chartered as a city in 1896.
Shawnee is situated in a fine agricultural region, is a shipping-point for alfalfa, cotton and potatoes, is an important market for mules, and has large railway repair shops, and cotton-gins and cotton compresses; among its manufactures are cotton-seed oil, cotton goods, lumber, bricks and flour.
Furthermore, a free-state " government " was set up, the " bogus " legislature at Shawnee being " repudiated."
Before the coming of white settlers there was an Indian village called Shawnee on the site of the present borough.
