Parke County Chamber of Commerce was formed in 1946 as the Rockville Commercial Club. The name changed to Parke county Chamber of Commerce, Inc. in 1984 to work to improve the economy of the area. The Chamber created Parke County Economic Development Office to pursue this goal.
Today, the Chamber and Economic Development offices work together to promote common interests of the community in order to make Parke County a better place to work, live and play.
