On March 17, 1891, the Camera became a daily newspaper. The name Camera was adopted because our founders envisioned a publication with more illustrations than most newspapers of that time.

We’ve been honing our vision and changing to fit the needs of our community ever since. The Camera started as a morning daily, changed to an afternoon Monday through Saturday paper in 1893 and hit our stride as a morning daily again in 1981. Ours was one of the first local newspapers to publish on the Internet in 1996 and one of the first to embrace mobile technology and social networking in recent years.

During the course of the Camera’s long history, we’ve been owned by entrepreneurs, families and corporations. But our heart and soul have always belonged to this community.

The Camera has delivered your news and supported our shared community for 121 years now. These are points of personal pride to us. And though we certainly don’t look the same as we did 100, 50 or even one year ago, our mission is the same today as it’s always been:

To deliver essential, informed and relevant news to our readers and unparalleled business opportunities to our advertising clients.

It feels good to be another year wiser. We’re looking forward to the next 121.
