Co-operative Publishing Company

The Co-Operative Publishing Company Building is a historic building in Guthrie, Oklahoma, that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. hat building burned to the ground in 1902 and was replaced by this four-story structure. The new building was designed by Joseph Pierre Foucart, and completed in that year. It was erected with the help of subscriptions in the amount of $50,000. In the 1990s and again in the 2000s, budget cuts led to the trimming of staff and programs at the museum and unexpected building-maintenance problems in 2012 led to a decision to close the museum indefinitely and up to 2016, it still remains closing.

Comparing this building to the Gray Bother building, it seems similar to each other.  However, It was built in commercial style since it was for offices places.  Therefore, there are many window in each unit.   I think that is why it looks boxy.  The connect two faces also square looking and all in one color, red, except some column in cream color.   I like it since it is simple looking but also look very stable.The Co-operative Publishing
