Guthrie's Historic District

Description

When Oklahoma City replaced Guthrie as the state capital in 1910, development came to a screeching halt. Relatively unchanged since then, this elegant enclave of 2,169 Victorian buildings on red brick streets now ranks as the largest contiguous urban district on the National Register of Historic Places. Homes range from swank, rambling mansions to worker's cottages; all are private residences and are rarely open to the public. Downtown area attractions include specialty shops, restaurants, and quaint museums, as well as an historic theater, a music hall, and a rodeo arena. Located 32 miles north of Oklahoma City via I-35, Guthrie hosts visitors year-round. A 45-minute narrated trolley ride boards at Second Avenue and Harrison six days a week except holidays; call 405-282-6000 for hours, which vary by day and season. Those who want to spend the night here can choose from cottages or bed and breakfasts, several of which are outstanding. For information on B&Bs and local events, contact the Guthrie Chamber of Commerce at 800-299-1889 or 405-282-1947.
