The North Side Commercial Club was founded in April 1904. The purpose of the club was "the promotion of the welfare of that part of the city known as the Third and Tenth wards." In 1911 the North Side Commercial Club moved into in the Merchants and Manufacturers Bank Building. This location included Club Rooms where members could gather socially on a daily basis. In 1911 membership had reached 200 people. The club had an annual meeting on the first Monday in May each year and organized addition meetings on an ad-needed basis. Club committees met separately. In later years, meetings were also held at the Plymouth Masonic Building on 1912 Emerson Avenue.

The Club was instrumental in the development of Camden Park (now called Webber Park) and North Commons Park. The Club was also involved in cleaning up Mississippi River from abandoned logs, resurfacing roads, raising funds for local schools.
