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.

Special Thanks to the Snohomish County Heritage Commission, whose funding assistance made it possible to preserve these newspapers and make them available for historical and genealogical research. 


The Granite Falls Historical Society mission is to collect, preserve, and share the history of the Granite Falls region to foster better understanding and appreciation of the values that built our city and contributed to our County’s rural heritage. Our method is to locate and identify appropriate material, to protect and interpret that material, and finally to make it available to the greatest possible extent. 


To that effect, you can browse or search thousands of pictures and documents online, visit our Museum to manipulate digitally overlaid maps from 1880s forward to modern aerial photos, and now browse our newspaper collection at the Museum or online.


The Granite Falls Historical Society is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization, operating solely on the contributions of its members and patrons.
