Shawnee Travel Guide: 25 reviews and 54 photos
Depicted here to the left of the corner is Missouri's pro-slavery raider William Quantrill, who led a murderous raid on Shawnee Town; on the right panel: scene from the Star Blacksmith shop which shod oxen and mules for Santa Fe Trail travelers; Union soldiers along the Military Road; the gunslinger in front of the flag is local resident and constable Wild Bill Hickock; the suited gentleman in front with a Bible is Methodist missionary to the Indians Thomas Johnson;
Seen in this section: pioneer Bishop Miege arrives by wagon 1868; behind the stage coach is Shawnee's first permanent building - the Wells Fargo station (still standing); Chief Charles Bluejacket, reading to some of his 23 children.
This section of the third mural depicts current day life in Shawnee. Central to this section are portraits of a number of city leaders. The fellow with the white beard and artist's palette is Charles Goslin, the painter himself. (The age-old custom of artists inserting themselves into paintings goes on.) To their left is the city seal, scenes from Old Shawnee Town, typical residences, and to the upper left Broken Arrow Elemetary and Shawnee Mission High Schools, both attended by my daughters.
