City of Corsicana
Corsicana is a community with a proud history and a living heritage. It is the birthplace of the Texas oil industry, the second largest planetarium in the state, one of the nationâ€™s premier Civil War museums, home of a restored vaudeville theatre, and an interactive village dedicated to the cityâ€™s pioneering times. The three Nationally Registered districts, Downtown Corsicana, Mills Place, and the Carriage District, include one of the state's most impressive collections of historic buildings and homes. Most of the city's buildings and homes were built following Texas's first commercial discovery of oil in 1894, only two blocks south of Downtown, at Petroleum Park. Stop by the Corsicana Visitor Center to pick up a driving tour of the stately neighborhoods of Mills Place and the Carriage District, or take a walking tour of the red-bricked streets of Historic Downtown. While downtown, be sure to stop into one of the many wonderful antique, gift, and boutique shops, as well as the diners and restaurants along Beaton Street and the intersecting avenues. . We invite you to enjoy Historic Downtown Corsicana!
