Kappa Kappa Psi has been headquartered in Stillwater, OK since it’s inception at Oklahoma A&M University in 1919. Tau Beta Sigma added Stillwater as the base for its headquarters once the two groups were recognized nationally as adjunct organizations in 1946. Previously located at the Seretean Center for the Performing Arts on the campus of Oklahoma State University, the current headquarters is in the former Santa Fe Railroad Depot in downtown Stillwater.
In November 1991, the National Headquarters relocated to Stillwater Station, an historic Santa Fe Railway Depot. The Station was purchased from a group of five Stillwater citizens, who bought the station at auction to insure that it would be preserved. Three of those men are alumni of the Alpha Chapter of Kappa Kappa Psi.
The original plans for Stillwater Station are dated June 15, 1911, and construction was completed in 1917 with the formal dedication ceremony being held in 1918. In 1980 the Station was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and it is visited by many train enthusiasts on a regular basis.
Stillwater Station provides our organizations will ample office space, a conference room, storage space, and archival areas. With the assistance of donations through Project S.O.S., many improvements have been made. A new roof, solid metal doors, and new office furniture have turned the Station into a professional looking showcase for our organizations.
The “Walk of Fame” has given individuals the opportunity to participate in maintaining and improving The Station by purchasing engraved bricks. The bricks are placed along the walkway approaching the entrance to the building. This ongoing project has enabled chapters and individuals to become a permanent part of the National Headquarters.
Chapters are encouraged to make the trip to Stillwater, Oklahoma, to view the National Headquarters. During visits, Work Weekend participants have the opportunity to assist with the upkeep of the property and other office functions.
