The Fort Scott Area Chamber of Commerce invites members and guests to a Chamber Coffee event this Thursday, January 26th at 8 a.m. hosted by The River Room Event Center, 3 W. Oak Street. Coffee, juice, and light refreshments will be served in addition to door prize drawings.
The River Room is a beautiful venue for weddings, receptions, banquets, conferences, meetings, and more. Capacity of the event center is technically 700 people for standing room only, and up to 400 can be seated comfortably. Located in the heart of the Downtown Historic District, The River Room view overlooks the Fort Scott National Historic Site National Park located at the north end of downtown.
Known as the Stout Building, the property is listed with the National Register of Historic Places and maintains significant architectural integrity to when it was erected in 1912 by The Fort Scott Grain & Implement Company, selling implements, buggies, carriages, wagons, touring cars, and tires. The building housed a number of businesses over the years and was saved and extensively restored in the early 2000’s by Dean and Becky Mann after being vacant long-term and becoming dilapidated. Al Niece, of Niece Products, purchased the building in 2018 from the Mann’s following their retirement and relocation to keep it alive as an asset to the community and visitors.
In November 2022, Cathy Bishop who recently retired from Niece Products became the new Event Coordinator for The River Room.
Any member business or organization wanting to host Chamber Coffee in 2023 is encouraged to contact the Chamber to save a date by calling 620-223-3566 or emailing [email protected].
We hope to see you there!
