Brad PittOscar Winning Actor
William Bradley Pitt was born December 18, 1963 right in good old Shawnee, Oklahoma. His grandmother's family came to the area during one of Oklahoma's infamous land runs.
Brad's father owned a trucking company and his mother was a school counselor. Shortly after he was born, the Pitt family moved to Springfield, MO.
Brad (we call him "Brad" around here*) still has family in the area and is rumored to have introduced several of his famous girlfriends and wives to Shawnee's local favorite cafes and hang-outs.
You may not be as cool, rich or good looking as Brad Pitt, but you are welcome to Visit Shawnee; where you can be who you want to be!
*Not to be confused with our other famous "Brad"; Brad Henry, Oklahoma's 26th Governor.
