Granite Falls Historical
Newspaper publishing in Granite Falls began in 1903, the year the city was incorporated, and continued almost uninterrupted through the 1960s. Since that time, a number of newspapers have started and stopped, and started again. Ownership and names changed a number of times, so titles include Granite Falls Record, Granite Falls Press, Snohomish County Forum, Journal, Tribune, and others. Issues prior to 1922 were lost, so if you find any of those, please contact the Granite Falls Historical Society, that they can be properly preserved alongside their counterparts.
The Granite Falls Historical Society contracted with SmallTownPapers, a company that specializes in digital preservation of small weekly newspapers, to have remaining issues digitally scanned. Digital processing of the images made it possible to offer keyword and name search capability, essentially “reading” thousands of pages in mere seconds to find specific articles and information.
All available issues have been scanned, and may be reviewed at the Granite Falls Museum or online through the web-hosting agreement between the Museum and SmallTownPapers.
