Bixby's Memorial Flag Pole that once stood at the intersection of Dawes & Armstrong as a reminder of sacrifices made for our freedom. It was originally placed at the intersection to honor the memory of the first Bixby area troop to fall in World War I and quickly became a symbol to honor the memory of all who paid the ultimate price for our freedom. In recent years the memorial was replaced with a generic flag pole by the City of Bixby whose spokesman said the longtime memorial to our fallen troops was ready to topple. However, it took several weeks for a work crew to dig the stalwart memorial out of its profoundly firm base and haul it to the dump. The hallowed icon was rescued and restored by concerned citizens. It, now, rests in Charley Young Park where the City committed to fly the American flag from its staff on special occasions.
