Guthrie is a city in, and the county seat of, Logan County, Oklahoma and as of the 2000 Census was populated by 9,925 people. The city, covering 19.2 square miles of total area, was the territorial and later the first state capital for Oklahoma. In the Guthrie, OK Yellow Pages and the Guthrie, OK Business Directory, you can find the Guthrie Historic District, which has been designated as a National Historic Landmark. Its amazing collection of late 19th and early 20th century and Victorian architecture gives Guthrie a unique Wild West feel complete with activities such as entertainment, carriage tours, replica trolley cars, specialty shops and art galleries.
Guthrie is also home to the Masonic Temple, the largest conservatory in the world. History shows that Guthrie originated in 1887 as a railroad station. However, on April 22, 1889, the "Land Run of 1889" began and Guthrie had about 10,000 people settle in over the course of 6 hours. Within months of President Benjamin Harrison's "Hoss Race", Guthrie had been laced with municipal water, electricity and a mass transit station. It even had underground parking garages for horses and carriages. Also in Guthrie, you will find Oklahoma's oldest year-round professional theatre company, the Pollard Theatre Company.
