Since 1974, the Rock Hill Business and Community Association (RHBCA) has acted both as a community action committee and as the local chamber of commerce for the hamlet of Rock Hill. We work to enhance the quality of our community so that our residents are proud of our “downtown”, our town retains its character as it grows, and our businesses thrive.
