2022 marked the 125th anniversary of The Lakeville Journal. The first issue was August 14, 1897; William McKinley was President. Spanning three centuries, The Lakeville Journal has been an enduring witness to events in northwest Connecticut and adjoining New York towns. That’s historic, especially since over 2200 newspapers in the US have shut down since 2005.
As one of the oldest weeklies in the country, we have survived. Times change, and we’ve changed with the times. The Lakeville Journal is now a non-profit institution, one of the first weekly newspapers in the country to make the transition.
As we continue into our 126th year of publication and beyond, we are:
- Preserving the tradition of grass-roots reporting on the people and events involved in local organizations vital to town life.
- Hiring more reporters. With new support the Journal can bring in reporters to cover important regional issues like Covid, drug abuse, Sharon Hospital, and climate.
- Digging deeper into local issues, good news or bad. Take a closer look at the local controversies and the colorful characters involved in them in town government.
- Expanding digital presentation of local news reporting.
- Advocating for full broadband access, to achieve optimal access to news and information for all.
Thank you for your continued support.
