Downtown Guthrie
Guthrie is a town in central Oklahoma, 33 miles north of Oklahoma City. It was Oklahoma's first state capital.

It was established in 1887 as a railroad station, originally named "Deer Creek." In 1889, it was made the first capital of the Territory of Oklahoma, and within only a few months, it went from a tiny village to a bustling city with brick and stone buildings, water systems, electricity, mass transit, and even underground parking garages for horses and carriages. It was then nicknamed "Queen of the Prairie" and gathered further prestige and wealth. However, in 1910, it was voted that the state capital should be changed to Oklahoma City, which in recent years had eclipsed Guthrie's fame with its meat-packing industry and size. After this, the town's size and economy slipped.

Today, the town is known for its history in the Westward Movement, historic downtown area, oak forests, and Victorian architecture.
