Guthrie, the first Capital of Oklahoma

Guthrie’s beauty and grace befit the optimism as the first state capitol of the new 46th state of Oklahoma.

Ongoing restoration since the 1980’s has preserved Guthrie’s rich architectural legacy and all its grandeur. Almost all of the original 19th century buildings remain and most of the commercial structures have been restored. Today, Guthrie is the largest contiguous urban historic district on the National Register, extending 1,400acres and 400 city blocks. A living museum of late 19th century architecture, Guthrie was designated a national Landmark Community in 1999.

Victors also love to explore the State Capital Publishing Museum. This museum houses one of the nation’s largest surviving printing plants. Various historic printing and bookbinding equipments is in display as well as other exhibits on life during the territorial and early statehood periods.
