Visit Reno on the Way: the History of the Reno Chamber of Commerce

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.
