When the Mecosta County Area Chamber Commerce celebrated their 75th Anniversary. Duane Weed, DW Video produced this two part video. The first is a timeline of all the presidents. The second part includes interviews with past presidents. Interesting history.
Wonder if the founders of Mecosta County knew what they were doing – ha ha! According to the Mecosta history website, “In 1852 John Davis purchased 160 acres in Mecosta Township and John Parish purchased 57 acres in Big Rapids. They were the first two permanent county residents. On July 20, 1852, the first family to reside in the county, William and Margaret Brockway and their two children moved into a logging shanty on Mitchell Creek. On February 12, 1853 Alice Victoria Brockway was born to the couple. Alice was the first white child born in the county. In the spring of 1853 the Brockwayís moved to a 200-acre farm in Aetna Township.”
The first chamber president was A. A. Worchester in 1935, he was a local attorney. In 1984 George Keen from SKE was the chamber president when DW Video joined the Mecosta County Area Chamber Commerce. “Barbara Wallace was the first women Executive Director and was the person that signed me up”, states Duane Weed.
