In 2007, AVB Bank, recognizing the need to preserve and share the history and culture of Broken Arrow, donated the land that would one day become the Broken Arrow Historical Society Museum (located at 400 South Main Street). A dedication plaque commemorating this generous donation was unveiled during a recent building dedication ceremony.
On hand for the dedication ceremony were several members of the Broken Arrow community, including museum, city and bank
