Establishment of Becker

And it’s Area Chamber of Commerce

Settlers began arriving to this area in the mid 1850s and called this area Pleasant Valley. The establishment of the Pleasant Valley Post Office in 1866 and arrival of the railroad in 1867 ensured the settlement’s long term survival. Becker Township, organized in 1871, and the City of Becker, incorporated in 1901, were named after George Loomis Becker an agent for the railroad.


Some time after the town’s organization a group of business owners and citizens came together to seek to cultivate the industrial, commercial, professional & financial resources of Becker, which led to the incorporation of the Becker Area Chamber of Commerce in December of 1975. The Becker Area Chamber of Commerce has been providing the core services established by our founders since inception.
