It’s been almost three years since OSU Institute of Technology purchased the nearly century-old building complex at 5th Street and Grand Avenue in downtown Okmulgee.
What was once the city’s post office has now been completely renovated into the Grand Old Post Office, the university’s new loft-style student apartments, and is ready to open its doors to visitors.
The grand opening of the Grand Old Post Office Student Housing is set for Tuesday, Nov. 28. A private ribbon-cutting ceremony for invited guests is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. The building will officially open to the general public beginning at 11:30 a.m. and visitors are welcome to come and go for an exclusive preview of the building’s impressive features. Semi-guided tours will be offered throughout the day and evening; the last tour will be offered at 8:30 p.m.
