A life-size bronze statue depicting Chief Charles Bluejacket - a Shawnee Indian Chief, minister and farmer in the town's early days has been created by Charles Goslin and placed on the northeast corner of Johnson Drive and Cody, Herman Laird Park. Bluejacket, the great Shawnee war chief, and his grandson, the Rev. Charles Bluejacket, are amply memorialized in the city of Shawnee, where the latter Bluejacket served as head chief in the 1860s.
