Visit Reno on the Way: the History of the Reno Chamber of Commerce
Presented by Historic Reno Preservation Society
With Joyce Cox, Author and Research Librarian
The Reno Chamber began as the Reno Improvement Society in 1898 and the Reno Commercial Club in 1906. To support local businesses and to promote Northern Nevada as a good place to live, the Chamber promoted the area with unique and innovative slogans as “Visit Reno on the Way” in 1939 and “Reno, Let’s Tell the World” in 1949.
