The City Clerk's office is responsible for maintaining the sale of burial spaces and arranges for grave openings in Summit View Cemetery. The cemetery was established in the late 1800s by a group of citizens and was sold to the City of Guthrie in 1915, where ownership has remained to the present time. Additional land was acquired in 1949 and again in 1975. Summit View Cemetery is located on North Pine Street in Guthrie, Logan County, Oklahoma.
The cemetery has a Boot Hill section and has received publicity because some famous outlaws are buried there. One of Boot Hill's outlaws is Bill Doolin of the Doolin Gang, and the other is Elmer McCurdy, a bank robber killed in 1911. Mr. McCurdy's body had been a carnival attraction for a number of years after his death and was finally brought back to Guthrie for its final resting place.
