The Logan County Historical Society was founded in 1974 in order to help save Guthrie's historic downtown. Today, downtown Guthrie is a National Landmark District. Since its founding, the society has helped to preserve and recognize a number of other structures in Logan County.
In 2014, the Historical Society undertook a new strategic plan, resulting in a new era for the historical society. This era includes diverse historical programming, a whole-county focus, experiential history, and an increased effort to save Logan County history Beyond Statehood.
