The Greater Cornwall Chamber of Commerce(previously known as the Cornwall Business Association, Inc.) was founded in the early Twentieth Century. Although the exact date is not known, according to the amended By-Laws of December 10, 1928, the Cornwall Business Men's Association, as it was originally named, was alive and well with meetings on the second Monday of each month."
On December 8, 1952, the Cornwall Business Men's Association was incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation. In 1984 the Cornwall Business Men's Association, Inc. amended the certification of incorporation for purposes of a name change to the Cornwall Business Association, Inc. Although the name has certainly changed, the purpose of the Association remains constant.
