History & History Related Items

Here is a history page for Guthrie.

Guthrie began with a boom! A cannon boom to be exact at noon on 22 April 1889 when the land rush began bringing over 10,000 new homesteaders to the Indian Territory and what would be Oklahoma Territory's first Capital, Guthrie. In 1907, when Oklahoma became a state, Guthrie was chosen as the new State Capital. By 1910, on 11 June, the state seal was moved to Oklahoma City which was to be the new state capital. The sudden move hurt the economy of Guthrie greatly. It took many years for the city to recover. Due to its rich heritage, many beautiful homes and buildings were built and have been preserved and some restored. The HIstoric district is one of the largest in the nation.
