We’re excited to announce that the Delaware River Towns Chamber of Commerce, the not-for-profit organization that promotes and advocates business growth in the Delaware River Towns and runs this very website, recently moved to a new downtown office on Tuesday November 1, 2016. The new office is located at 77 Bridge Street, Lambertville, one of the most visible locations in the gateway to the River Towns, and will offer Visitors Bureau services throughout the week and on weekends.
The organization currently represents 400 members in Lambertville, New Hope, Stockton, Centre Bridge, Frenchtown, Lumberville, Washington Crossing and Point Pleasant.
“This new location in the heart of the community places us in a high traffic location for visitors,” says Chamber President Glenn Davis. “We now have a prime spot to highlight the East Coast’s premier location for the arts, shopping, fine dining, and recreation.”
“The Bridge Street location allows the Chamber to expand our role in serving visitors which, in turn, serves the business community,” according to David Morgan, Executive Director. “Opening a visitors center is the next logical step in expanding our services. This new location will create an exciting synergy for our businesses, visitors and residents. A centrally located Visitors Bureau will provide all who venture into our communities the resources needed to enjoy and experience all that our Delaware River Towns have to offer.”
Working in conjunction with our members from Visit Bucks County and New Hope Visitors Center, the Delaware River Towns Chamber of Commerce will share information that will benefit all River Town communities on both sides of the Delaware, and to promote the beauty of this unique corner of the world. The new Visitors Center location will feature historic photographs of the River Towns and provide gallery space featuring the works of local artists. The Center will provide maps, visitor guides, brochures and connectivity to Manhattan Transbridge Bus Line located directly across the street. Volunteers and local students seeking community service credits are welcome to apply.
The soft opening of the facility will take place during the second week of November and the Chamber will host an open house for the public on the First Friday in December – December 2, 2016 – from 5pm to 8 pm.
