The Corsicana Opry & Event Center is housed in a historic circa 1905 cherry red brick building. We have 23,000 sq ft on the 1st floor and balcony, and 7,000 sq ft in the basement.

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.

Welcome from Carolyn McCombs

Carolyn McCombsI moved back to Texas after living in Florida for number of years because my mother was aging and needed help.  She suffered an injury and was recuperating at home when I decided we needed something to do.  While driving around town we drove by what is now the Corsicana Opry and we noticed a ‘For Sale’ sign on the building.  I told my mother I just wanted to peek in the window.  Inside, I saw the balcony above the main floor and instantly said to myself, “That is an Opry!”

Mother and I bought the building and The Corsicana Opry and Event Center was born.

Now, in Corsicana, there is a wonderful venue for musicians and singers as well as a facility for groups of all interests to meet.

We have big plans to expand the Opry to build a steak house restaurant on the main level and apartments upstairs.  A wine cellar and tasting room will be created in the basement below the restaurant.  We will be adding more shows and events to the calendar in the coming year while we continue to make improvements to the building.  Making the Corsicana Opry and Event Center the perfect place for weddings, meetings and entertainment is our goal.
