On Tuesday the White House Chamber of Commerce held a long-awaited ribbon cutting of its new location on Highway 76.
Dozens of business and community leaders were in attendance at the event, which officially introduced the chamber's newly renovated office and visitors center to the public.
The new office occupies the location of the former White House City Library, which moved to a new facility in 2016. Renovations on the building began last summer, with the chamber moving into the new facility in July of this year.
The Chamber office includes a reception area with a monitor to display event and business advertising, as well as offices for chamber staff. The second floor of the building has been converted into a 30-person training room, open free of cost for use by chamber members.
"We hope that will be utilized pretty heavily," said White House Chamber President and CEO Mandy Christenson.
A second stage of renovation in the building is set to be completed by the first of the year and will house the White House City Museum. Formerly on the second story of the building, the museum will be expanded to include more artifacts and exhibits.
