Brookville Chamber Dates Back To 1923
The Brookville Area Chamber of Commerce office is located at 100 Franklin Avenue comanding an impressive view of Historic Main Street. Samuel Stewart Henderson was a member of one of Brookville's pioneer families; beginning as a druggist, diversifying into timber production, enventually involving himself in coal exploration. His Queen Anne style home was built in 1894, several additions were built on through the years.
The Chamber, too, goes back into Brookville’s history with the first meeting being held in November of 1925. At this meeting the Brookville Business Mens’ Association, organized in 1923, and the Chamber of Commerce were merged together to be known as the Brookville Chamber of Commerce. This newly formed group immediately addressed issues such as industry development, civic improvement, park and street improvement, the tourist trade and promoting Brookville.
Since then, the Chamber has been a recognizable organization working within the community with many of the same goals at hand. The Chamber is sustained and empowered by its membership and, in communicating and working together, has been instrumental in attaining great strides in our area.
