Guthrie County is a historical gem located in the great state of Iowa. Established on January 15, 1851, it was named in honor of Edwin B. Guthrie, an Iowa Supreme Court Justice who was an influential figure at the time. The county has a rich agricultural heritage, with fertile farmland supporting its economy for generations. Over the decades, this region experienced rapid growth and development as transportation infrastructure, especially railroads, expanded across the area.

Guthrie County's seat is Guthrie Center, which was founded in 1856 by Captain Alfred Blake. Many of the county's settlements emerged shortly after the Civil War as part of the expansion of the Midwest. Two major rail lines, the Chicago, Rock Island, and Pacific Railroad, and the Milwaukee Railroad, played significant roles in this expansion by providing residents with access to markets and opportunities for travel.

One fun fact about Guthrie County is its famous White Pole Road, which dates back to 1910. It is a portion of the historic auto trail that linked Des Moines and Council Bluffs. The road's name comes from the tradition of painting telephone poles along the route white as a way to guide travelers at a time when reliable signage and route-marking systems were scarce. The White Pole Road played a significant role in the county's early tourism and economic development, earning it the nickname "Iowa's Great White Way."

Today, the spirit of the White Pole Road lives on through the White Pole Road Development Corporation, which promotes the revitalization and preservation of the area's history and fosters economic development by supporting local businesses and tourism.
