Our History

The Greater Watertown-North Country Chamber of Commerce was established in 1903. Initially known as the Watertown Business Association, the organization changed it's name to the chamber of commerce and in the Spring of 1903 the Watertown Chamber of Commerce was thereby incorporated. Most recently, the chamber has changed its name to reflect its present membership that now includes businesses from across the region.  The Greater Watertown - North Country Chamber of Commerce represents the business interests of over 600 members throughout Jefferson County as well as Lewis, St Lawrence, Oswego and Onondaga counties.
