it's cabin time™ in Broken Arrow
Hometown feels and a suburban charm surrounds the city of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Broken Arrow is a city located in the northeastern part of Oklahoma, primarily in Tulsa County, with a portion in western Wagoner County. The city's name comes from an old Creek community in Alabama. Members of that community were expelled from Alabama by the United States government, along the Trail of Tears in the 1830s. The Creek founded a new community in the Indian Territory and named it after their old settlement in Alabama. The town's Creek name was Rekackv (pronounced thlee-Kawtch-kuh), meaning broken arrow. The new Creek settlement was located several miles south of present-day downtown Broken Arrow.

You can shop your heart out at the local shops in the Rose District, savor the rich aroma of handmade chocolates and coffee at Nouveau - Atelier de Chocolat on Main Street.
