Newspaper prepares to mark 150th year milestone in March

The News-Democrat is preparing to hit a milestone that few businesses achieve: 150 years of service to the community.

It was on Wednesday, March 25, 1868, that the first edition of The Carrollton Democrat hit the streets featuring a mix of national, state and local news. Over the years, the focus of the news coverage moved to primarily local happenings. In the 1930s, the Democrat merged with The Carrollton News, making one newspaper that became The News-Democrat.
