Significance: Guthrie is a town which sprang up literally overnight. On April 21, 1889, the site was occupied by numerous lot markets, several skulking "sooners" and two wooden buildings, the recently constructed Federal land office and the slightly older Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad depot. By the evening of the 22nd, it was booming tent city, its population between ten and fifteen thousand people, occupying four town sits instead of the original single sit laid out by the government surveyors. According to the terms of the opening of the territory the town could only occupy 320 acres. The provision was circumvented by the settlers of Guthrie by organizing four separate municipal governments which were consolidated only when the absurdity of the original law was finally realized and correct, in August 1890. Immediately, the new citizens began to make the settlement a permanent one, erecting wooden houses and a few wooden commercial structures.
