Nestled among the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in the northwest corner of South Carolina, surrounded by rivers, lakes and waterfalls, Walhalla is the county seat of Oconee. Founded by German settlers in the 1850s, Walhalla means ‘Garden of the Gods’.
Serving Walhalla, West Union, Salem, Tamassee, and Mountain Rest, the Greater Walhalla Area Chamber of Commerce is devoted to promoting the business, civic, cultural and social growth of the community to ensure that opportunities for increased income and expansion are available to all the area businesses.
In addition, the Chamber works to preserve the community’s historic roots while helping local business owners maintain and/or sharpen their competitive edge in today’s economy. The Walhalla Chamber is a member of the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and the Oconee Pickens Chamber Coalition which is comprised of six chambers including Clemson, Easley, Pickens, Oconee, Walhalla and Westminster. The Walhalla Chamber also works closely with the Oconee Economic Alliance through economic development.
Housed in the historic Earle House, located at 105 West South Broad Street, just one block off Main (Hwy 28), the Chamber of Commerce provides assistance to visitors and tourists interested in discovering more about local shopping, lodging, restaurants, sites, activities and entertainment. The business office hours are Monday-Friday from 9:00am-1:00pm. For assistance or specific requests, please call 864-638-2727 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
