There are also two oversize folders. During processing much of the original organizational scheme for file names was retained.

Administrative Information

The Woodstock Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1922 by a group of local business leaders who sought to improve the local economy. Over the years the organization was responsible for many projects including the construction of the Woodstock Tower, local parades, town beautification efforts, business initiatives, and festivals. The organization merged with several other local chamber of commerce organizations in 2011 and changed its name to the Shenandoah County Chamber of Commerce.

Scope and Content

It contains items related to the Woodstock Chamber of Commerce produced between 1922 and 2015. The majority of the items are from the chamber’s membership and board meetings. These include minutes, financial statements, activity reports, and supporting documents.

The collection also contains the chamber’s membership cards for several years ca. 1990. These contain the names of businesses, individuals, and organizations that were members of the chamber and are sorted by membership type.
