Shawnee is eight miles southeast of Annona in southeastern Red River County. It took its name from nearby Shawnee Creek and Shawnee Prairie. Although settlement began in the area much earlier, a community did not begin to emerge until the late 1870s. In 1881 it had a general store, Shawnee Chapel, and a physician. A post office was opened in 1895, and the next year the town had a general store, a sawmill, a gristmill, a gin, a church, and a population of forty. The post office was closed in 1906, and by 1936 the community had a church, a school, and a few widely scattered houses. In 1984 Shawnee had only a church and a few dwellings.
