Corsicana Opry interior with oil derrick.The Event Center is perfect for... Concerts, Weddings, Receptions, Reunions, Birthday Parties, Showers, Church Services, Meetings, Auctions, Seminars, Vendor Shows and more.
A handmade wooden oil derrick surrounds the staircase to the second floor. Original 2”x14” wooden beams bolted six deep create the 27' high wood rafter ceiling.
This building is considered one of the first clear span buildings in Texas. It also has its own 10’x16' vault with the original old Mosler safe. And, as in many old buildings, yes, we have ghosts!
We can offer our 500 plus capacity auditorium, Roustabout Room for 100, a conference room that holds 35 and our Magnolia Tea Room that seats 35.
We have a snack bar with preparatory kitchen. The building is ideal for film or photo shoots and we offer Historic Building Tours.
