Significance: This turn of the century structure is a very fine example of functional industrial architecture of the period. Designed by an architect of local prominence to meet the very specific needs of a newspaper, it housed what is considered to have been the most important and influential publishing house of Territorial Oklahoma. It is further an integral part of the physical commercial image of Guthrie as Capital City, and is both paradigmatic in its use of materials, style, and conception of commercial space, and unique in being designed for a specific function, as opposed to the speculative nature of building which was the rule in Guthrie at the time.
