MHS Centennial Business: Stonewall Argus & Teulon Times

The first newspaper at Stonewall was The Stonewall News and Rockwood County Advertiser, published between 1882 and 1891. On 9 March 1893 its printing plant was used by the Argus. In its first issue it announced “Taking for its motto Principle before Policy The Argus expects to grow better as it grows older, and to be at all times a live factor in local affairs.” Since 1922, it has appeared as the Stonewall Argus and Teulon Times. The paper has been designated as an MHS Centennial Business.
