According to The Cherokee Tribune, the event featured historical photos of churches and businesses from Woodstock’s past and also honored Evelyn Chambers, the former city and mayor, for which The Chambers is named.{[}]{[}]The space for The Chambers dates back to 1913 as the sanctuary of Woodstock Baptist Church and marks the first step in the city’s move back into downtown after vacating the old Woodstock Municipal Complex in 2009.

The Chambers will hold 125 people for Council meetings and City Planning sessions and will also soon be made available for rent for public functions.{[}]{[}]According to Woodstock City Manager Jeff Moon, the council will soon undertake discussions to convert the remainder of the site (four acres and two other buildings) into its future City Hall to complete Woodstock official’s promise to move back downtown.{[}]{[}]We’ve written previously about the city’s move back to Downtown Woodstock GA and think this continues the revival of the city.
