Perhaps the Business Courier headline summed it up best with this:"Chamber's fiery loss was community's gain". They were referring to Dan Hurley's latest monthly column that celebrates the Chamber's 175th anniversary.
This month, Hurley, the Chamber's Director of Leadership Cincinnati and
local historian, describes a deadly fire that destroyed the Chamber's building more than a century ago. Read about the ill-fated decision that kept that building from being rebuilt, and how today, you can still see and touch parts of that building.
Additionally, all of Dan's monthly columns and more on the Chamber's history
and 175th anniversary can be found on the Chamber's history
