60 Years Ago

From The Files Of January 25, 1951

This week The Fulton County News began one of the biggest job it ever tackled – moving the office to a new location. Within a month, it is hoped, the News will be in operation in the Morton building, just north of the Fulton County Bank on North Second Street, in what is known as the old post office building. Sometime this week, it is expected that a new press will be bought from Bedford – in pieces – and reassembled in the new location. After the new press is set up, the rest of the office will be moved.
