The Cache Valley Chamber of Commerce Building was sold recently to Northern Title Company.
The Daughters of the Utah Pioneers and the Cache Valley Chamber of Commerce are expected to stay in the building, at least short term.
“It is a good building with some historical value,” said Jay Davis, Northern Title’s President. “We will try to do some things that will enhance the building.”
The brick structure was built in 1911 for government functions including a Post Office, District Court and the County Clerk’s office. It has been the home of the chamber of commerce since the 1980s.
The Cache Valley Chamber of Commerce, who owned the building, decided to put it on the market. The business networking organization has a mission to serve its members, be a resource, and add value to the members and their enterprises. Being a landlord was not part of their mission, said Jamie Andrus, the chamber’s President/CEO.
There are several tenants, including the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers Museum, that have long term leases.
The plaque on the front of the building said it is National Historic Site. The adjacent east-west street was named Federal Avenue because of the building’s governmental use.
