  • I have seen other reviews on this and the newer portion of it was never the state capitol building. Guthrie was the state capital and the original portion of the building was. None the less it is well...  more »

  • Gorgeous building! Tim keeps this historic landmark up to date and maintains it's beauty!
  • This place is good for events if you are in the area. The location is very old but has preserved the architecture really well. They even have a hydraulic elevator. I have never seen that before. The location has 20amp breakers though so if you are planning to run a lot of equipment to power speakers and lights, be sure to split the power draw around the hall. The accoustics are really good because of the wooden architecture and design of the hall. I did not like the staff that much though. They were a little rude and were rushing us out of the place as soon as we closed the show. We pack up pretty quick too, but they made it clear that they wanted us out of there. They also do not allow tap on the floors, even if it is gaffing tape. They probably don't know the difference. The bathrooms we're a little smelly too. If they up their game on cleanliness and hospitality, this would get a really good review from me.
  • Been there since I was a child but they said some beautiful Easter pageant
  • Beautiful historic building with many captivating architectural details. Museum downstairs is rich with details of the organization, and many symbols and sigils. Definitely worth the visit. Very exciting offering the individual an opportunity to learn about the work of writing, while being prepared utilized for the Con. Breathtaking.
  • Pretty amazing building. So fortunate to have such a building in Guthrie.
