Celebrating a Century of Service
The McMinnville Area Chamber of Commerce is more than 100 years old. Actually, older if you consider the organization before the filing for Non-for-Profit status in 1915. Due to a rule of Congress in 1913 organizations could become non-profit concerning the IRS if they were able to fit in certain categories. Since 1915 the McMinnville Area Chamber of Commerce has been a 501c6 nonprofit working for the good of business in our community.
With that much history under our belts, it would not be surprising that we would find some cool documents, photos, and videos from time to time. Over time we’ve given many documents and forms to the Yamhill County Historical Society and other organizations, as well as suffering loss from fire and flooding in years long remembered. We will place remaining documents that we find here to live in digital format.
