A Brief History

The Tennessee Chamber is an organization with a long, proud history. It started in 1912, when 150 industrialists boarded a train in Chattanooga to head to Nashville. They were on a mission and it involved what they considered to be “unfair taxes.” They were led by a 20-piece brass band and made stops along the railroad route to pick up other businessmen.

They arrived in Nashville to find that trains from the other Grand Divisions of the state were here, bearing business leaders who all shared the same common purpose: create an organization to represent interests of the state’s businesses.
