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.

We can offer our 500 plus capacity auditorium, a conference room that holds 50 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.

As in many old buildings, yes, we have ghosts!

Welcome from Carolyn McCombs

Carolyn McCombsI moved back to Texas after living in Florida for a number of years. My mother was aging and it was time for me to come home. After recovering from a broken hip, Mother was doing well, I felt we needed something to do. On a weekly drive into town, we saw a “for sale” sign on an old building. Excited to look in the window, and seeing the balcony above the first floor, I exclaimed “Now, that's 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 plans to expand the Opry by adding a steak house 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.
