The Newspaper

The Franklin County Times is said to have begun publication in 1879. The fire of 1953 which destroyed the Franklin County Courthouse also destroyed files of Franklin County newspapers and much data must now be gathered from clippings and oral accounts handed down from generation to generation.

Boone Newspapers purchased the Franklin County Times in 1978. The Franklin County Times now publishes every Wednesday and Saturday.

The Franklin County Times may be reached by calling 256.332.1881
