Welcome to Keene, Texas

Keene offers visitors and residents the charm and warm hospitality of small-town life at its best combined with easily available modern conveniences and amenities. Located 30 minutes south of Fort Worth, Keene has it all: a mild four-season climate, recreational opportunities, a large University, award-winning schools, myriad of cultural and social activities, affordable cost-of-living, and a thriving and prosperous business community.

The Keene Chamber of Commerce has been serving Keene since 1993. We strive to partner with local businesses, government and education to support a favorable economic environment. The Chamber represents business, organization, and individual members who depend on the Chamber for member services including networking events, community and business development, ribbon cuttings, growth opportunity reports, economic data gathering, business referrals, business seminars, relocation packets, and being an advocate with governmental and regulatory bodies. These are among the many services we provide to our members.

The Keene Chamber's objective is to provide a platform from which our members can enhance their business or organization through networking and programs designed to improve their bottom-line and to make available the tools necessary to excel as the economy improves. Our mandate is to pursue opportunities in the areas of retail development and education. We will work diligently to ensure that our local economy is strong and vibrant.
