A Century's Worth of History
In 1925, the areas of Daytona, Daytona Beach, and Seabreeze consolidated into one, and the six-year-old Chamber became known as the "Triple City Chamber." The express purpose of the Triple City Chamber was to “ensure more effective advertising” for the area…with a $200 operational budget.
