The Enid Welcome Center, home to Visit Enid in the historic Kress Building at 123 W Maine, is moving to make way for progress in downtown Enid.

Tuesday, July 16 is when the Enid Welcome Center will be moved from its current location on the downtown square to its new home at 201 W Owen K Garriott. The move is necessary as construction is pending on the 131-room Hilton Garden Inn, which will be attached to the new Enid Event Center.

“This building, formerly Kress Department Store and the Cherokee Strip Conference Center, has brought Enid many great memories - and helped Visit Enid showcase Enid to travelers,” said Visit Enid director Marcy Jarrett. “We are looking forward to the adventures that await us in the new Enid Welcome Center at the corner of Independence and Garriott.”
