CH)--On this day, 100 years ago, January 14, 1921, 2,500 people gathered at 301 S. Independence to watch the cornerstone be put in place for Convention Hall. They listened to Mr. Edmund Frantz dedicate the new building saying “These exercises mark the culmination of twenty years of dreaming and planning. We are at last to have a Convention Hall, a great Auditorium, a place of assembly, a Memorial Building”. In 1919 Enid Mayor Milton Garber proposed a bond issue to construct a building to memorialize the Garfield County soldiers in World War I. That building became Convention Hall. After 90 years, renovations began in May 2011 as part of the Enid Renaissance Project. The renovation took a year and a half to complete at a cost of just over $7 million. Convention Hall reopened in November 2012 and since then has been the premier meeting venue for Northwest Oklahoma. Currently Convention Hall hosts over 350 events annually including meetings, banquets, fundraisers, galas, conferences, trade shows and more. Convention Hall is part of the Stride Bank Center Complex, which is owned by the City of Enid and operated by Spectra Venue Management.

To kick-off the yearlong celebration of Conventional Hall is a 100th Anniversary Celebration Video produced by the City of Enid Media Center. Click here to watch the video. Stay tuned for more events as the year goes along and we’d like to hear from you about your memories from Convention Hall. We encourage you to share your photos and stories by emailing us at ConventionHall100@enid.org.
