Travel Tips for Guthrie
Township's Obligatory Sentinel
Guthrie at 10,000 souls is either a small city or a large town. Given that most of its buildings scarcely top two stories, it feels like a town, and towns in America are scarcely towns unless they boast a local water tower. Though persons not familiar with the United States will not quite understand this, towns are almost universally identified by their water towers.
Guthrie Housing Styles II
North of the Scottish Rites Temple are some of Guthrie's more historic neighborhoods. The editor of the local newspaper (the Guthrie Leader; see Local Customs) is said to live in this white-pillared mansion that is not quite American Colonial, nor by any means Greek Revival, nor for that matter anything similar.
First United Methodist Church
First United is another of the religious houses on church row, though actually listed on Broad Street. Distinguished by its unique Guthrie-standard architecture, the tall corner spire marks this as perhaps the finest exterior of any house of worship in town, while the stained-glass inside (not personally witnessed) is probably also the pinnacle of religious ornament (along with St Mary's Cathedral).
Today, Miss Lizzie's Bordello is a knick-knack, jewelry and gift shop. Each of the sixteen rooms is now a separate showroom, but a bathtub from 1903 is original and still in situ. As a "well-respected" businesswoman who was "active" in church and civic affairs, Miss Lizzie (Madame) saw that her girls wore pretty clothes and had three hot meals daily. She was also particularly proud that her girls "married well," and probably not bashful that eminent politicians and businessmen entered from a discreet catwalk from the second floor. It remains a law in Guthrie prohibiting the exhibition of bare limbs from upstairs windows. In other words, do not wave to your friends in the street.
Victor Building Interior
The entrance to the Victor Building is underneath an oriel window, from which the visitor proceeds into a lobby that for all intents and purposes resembles a frontier bank of the 1890s. There is nothing in the information to support this, so the "teller" windows are probably part of the territorial offices of yesteryear. A little farther into the interior are the vaults and counting rooms. Photographs are encouraged.
