Santa Fe Plaza and "Star" Memorial

category : Memorials
Santa Fe Plaza and The Santa Fe Plaza is a downtown park providing a scenic and historic rest stop with benches and interesting historic items to browse around and see.

A genuine Santa Fe Caboose stands in the park and a "Statehood Star Memorial" is laid in the sidewalk at the front of the park.

The memorial plaque was donated to the city of Purcell by the Historical Society remembering, "On November 16, 1907, Purcell's children celebrated Oklahoma's entry into Statehood by forming a human "Star" in the downtown intersection. This symbolized Oklahoma's role as the 46th star in the U.S. Flag."

In 1995, the ceremony was duplicated by the children of Purcell and surrounding areas at which time the memorial plaque was presented.
