Guthrie

Founded during the 1889 Land Run, Guthrie served as Oklahoma's first capital - initially for the territory, then for the new state from 1907. Losing its charter to Oklahoma City after only three years (largely due to political machinations), it fell into a long slumber of little development, with Muskogee and then Tulsa quickly supplanting it as the state's second city. The same lack of economic development in the end resulted in it being the best preserved of Oklahoma's cities, with a compact, but almost completely intact downtown core of Victorian-style, commercial architecture that now attracts tourists from all across the region.

The first seven shots here were taken in January of 2005, the rest are from New Year's Eve 2008.
