MHS Centennial Business: Neepawa Press / Neepawa Banner and Press

On 28 May 1896 the Prospectus Number of The Neepawa Press was “sent Free to every resident of Beautiful Plains County.” The newspaper was designated as an MHS Centennial Business. In 2015, it was purchased from Vancouver-based Glacier Media by local residents Ken and Christine Waddell then, in October 2017, merged with the Neepawa Banner to become the Neepawa Banner and Press.
