All of the wonderful feelings of being home in a small town come to mind in this collection of photographs from the community of Konawa.
Settlers wanting a new start arrived in modern Seminole County in the early 1900s. Konawa is a Seminole word meaning “string of beads.” The string of beads caught the attention of infamous bank robber Charles "Pretty Boy" Floyd for different reasons, and in 1931 he robbed Konawa’s First National Bank. During World War II, Konawa aided in the war effort first-hand by housing German prisoners of war. Since 1963, Konawa has hosted an All-Night Gospel Singing event, drawing a talented and lively crowd from across the country.
