The city of Guthrie (located just 35 minutes north of Oklahoma City) was chosen as the Territorial Capital in the months following the Land Run of 1889, and when Oklahoma gained statehood in 1907, Guthrie became the state capital. Today, Guthrie has retained much of its territorial architecture (and charm!) to become one of the most picturesque places to visit. It stands today as a National Historic Landmark filled with examples of late 19th and early 20th Century architecture.
Here are just a few of the many ways to experience Guthrie:
- Grab some delicious donuts at Missy’s Donuts & Bakery.
- Find your inner musician at the Double Stop Fiddle Shop. We hear that Vince Gill has been known to pop in.
- Catch a show at the Pollard Theater.
- Get your caffeine fix at Hoboken Coffee Roasters.
- Going in the summer months? Don’t miss the chance for a good old-fashioned drive-in movie at Beacon Drive-In.
