Grant County Newspapers

The first newspaper printed in Grant county was the Williamstown News, published by E. S. Moore in the year 1872. After an existence of six months, for want of support and proper management, it was found necessary to suspend its publication, and the News ceased to exist.

The next step taken looking to the establishment of a newspaper in the county was the resuscitation of the old News office and the presentation to the public of the Grant County Bulletin. For a short time the Bulletin enjoyed a liberal support and was considered a permanent institution. Pecuniary embarrassment, however, rendered its suspension unavoidable, and after a life of one year it followed its predecessor.

The next paper established was the Williamstown Sentinel, by Chas. B. Bradley, in 1874.The Sentinel was afterward transferred to W. N. Hogan, who transferred it to E. H. Eyer and Chas B. Bradley. Within the last year E. H. Eyer, by another transfer, has become the sole editor and proprietor, under whose energetic management it has become quite a newsy little sheet, receiving the hearty support of the people and is now, we hope, a fixed institution of the county.
