Background Note

The Rutland Chamber of Commerce, formerly the Merchants Association of Rutland (1898-1902) and the Rutland Businessmen's Association (1912-1920), was founded on March 16, 1920, and presently continues activities in the Mead building in Rutland, Vermont. The Chamber's primary concern is the business and industrial development of the Rutland area. During its seventy years of service, the Chamber has sponsored many innovative cultural and recreational programs, including the Rutland Bicentennial Celebration (1961) and the Winter carnival (1951-1962).
