Chamber Building History

The St. Helens Railway Station has been bringing people into our community since it first opened in October of 1921. That hustle and bustle are evident in the above photo from the CCMA’s Sentinel-Mist/Brownlow Family Collection. That tradition has continued for nearly a century, most recently by serving as the South Columbia County Chamber of Commerce where it helps to build a healthy economy and improve life in our community. We invite you to celebrate this historic building as this historic building turns 100!
