The Best Places to Take Pictures in Guthrie

Here we go!

The Pollard Theater

Pollard Theater - Guthrie - Oklahoma - by Stephanie Craig

I have a special place in my heart for vintage theaters – whether they are cinemas or staged for live performances.

The Pollard Theater in Guthrie is a historical theater with a beautiful exterior. It’s perfect for an outdoor photoshoot, especially when viewed from across the street!

Address: 120 W Harrison Ave, Guthrie, OK 73044

The State Capital Publishing Museum

Oklahoma - Guthrie - Downtown Guthrie - First State Capital Building

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the building that houses the State Capital Publishing Museum is both beautiful and played an important role in Oklahoma’s history. This is where President Teddy Roosevelt sent his telegraph letting Oklahoma know that we were officially becoming the 46th state.

Built in 1902, it features a three-dimensional tower “capped with a Russian onion dome.”

Address: 301 W Harrison Ave, Guthrie, OK 73044

The Coca-Cola Mural

Guthrie - Oklahoma - Coca Cola Mural - by Stephanie Craig

Old Coca-Cola murals always harken back to the early and middle twentieth century, when you really could get an entire Coke for a nickel.

Proclaiming that Coca-Cola “relieves fatigue,” the mural is painted on the side of a 1904 building, but it was added in the 1980s when the building was undergoing a renovation.

Address: 123 W. Harrison Avenue, Guthrie, Oklahoma 73044

Guthrie Scottish Rite Building

Oklahoma - Guthrie - Scottish Rite of Freemasonry

One of the world’s largest Scottish Rite temples, you can use this for a classical or ancient-themed photo shoot. If you want to see the building’s beautiful interiors, they offer tours from Mondays through Thursdays.

The Gray Brothers Building

Oklahoma - Guthrie - Downtown

One of the most iconic buildings in a town full of iconic architecture, the Gray Brothers Building was built in the early 1890s.

It is considered one of the “finest remaining examples of stylish commercial buildings of the territorial period in Oklahoma.”

I adore the beautiful silver dome and the details on the building’s entrance.

Guthrie: 101-103 W. Oklahoma Avenue, Guthrie, Oklahoma 73044

Stables Cafe

Oklahoma - Guthrie - Stables Cafe - Beer

This fun and kitschy hole-in-the-wall restaurant in Guthrie is fun for a meal, but you’ll also want to give yourself time to snap a few pics of the wacky memorabilia decorating the restaurant’s walls.

You can read my Stables Cafe review here.

Address: 223 N Division St, Guthrie, OK 73044

Lintz Department Store

Oklahoma - Guthrie - Downtown Guthrie - Lintz Department Store

Another downtown Guthrie building listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the facade of the Lintz Department Store shows off a beautiful 1920s facade that gives it a bit of a different style than some of the other building downtown.

While the building itself was constructed from 1899-1909, it’s the Jazz Age touches and the Black Carrera Glass that make this building shine.

Address: 117-121 W. Oklahoma Avenue, Guthrie, OK 7344

Architectural Details

Oklahoma - Guthrie - Downtown Guthrie - The First National Bank Clock

So far, I’ve highlighted specific buildings that I adore, but Guthrie is also bursting with individual architectural details, like this lamp stamped with the name “The First National Bank.”

Take your camera and spend an hour walking around town, really looking at the details of the buildings as you pass them. You never know what you’ll discover!

Address: Downtown Guthrie

SH 33 Historic Bridge

Oklahoma - Guthrie - Noble Aqueduct

The arcade under the SH 33 Bridge is a beautiful spot. I can see a lot of artistic and historic-themed photoshoots happening here.

You can see some historic black-and-white photos of this location here.

Address: SH 33 Guthrie Historic Bridge

Vintage Cars

Oklahoma - Guthrie - Old Rusted Car in Field

You’ll find vintage cars around town, both working and in disrepair. If you are looking for vintage-inspired backdrops for your photography, and you want to go beyond the architecture, keep your eyes peeled for these classic automobiles.

Guthrie’s Backroads

Oklahoma - Guthrie - Old Building

While the historic buildings downtown are well-maintained if you like your buildings to look a little more authentic and timeworn, drive around the town’s backroads.

Old Santa Fe Depot of Guthrie 

Oklahoma - Guthrie - Santa Fe Depot - Guthrie Train Station

The old train station, known as the Old Santa Fe Depot, has some great touches and is a great place to come wander around. You’ll find lots of fun details as well as the chance to capture train pics – if you time your visit to when one is rolling on through.

No longer a working train station, it houses Gages Steak House. There are rumblings (pun intended) that Amtrak plans to bring service back to Guthrie.

Address: 409 W Oklahoma Ave, Guthrie, OK 73044 

Guthrie’s Victorian Houses

Oklahoma - Guthrie - Victorian House decorated for Christmas in the snow

There are many beautiful Victorian-era homes in Guthrie. Some are renovated and have been kept up, and others are more timeworn.

Whichever you prefer, they’re waiting for you here!

The Adler Building

Guthrie - Oklahoma - by Stephanie Craig-1

Built in 1893, The Adler Building features a stunning “crowned parapet with ornate pressed metal cornice brackets” along with a stone panel reading “Adler.”

The details on the facade make it one of the most charming of Guthrie’s historic buildings, and one not to miss!

Address: 109 W. Oklahoma Avenue, Guthrie, OK 73044

Whatever Else You Can Find…
