“Pick up a subscription!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014

It's hard to believe this newspaper has been in business since 1880. We ordered a yearly subscription to be mailed (one monthly) to Indiana. They also gave us 4 special historical editions; for example one from October 1881 with the O.K. Corral gunfight story,

“Not a must do... but still interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

My father got a kick out of this more then I did but it was still cool to see some of the old equipment used to make the papers and wanted posters around the town.

He bought a few souvenirs, we snapped a few pics, but if you're on a time crunch it's one of those places that could be skipped.

If you're a history buff stop by, if you have kids they probably won't enjoy it.

“Free and pretty interesting!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

My husband and I walked through this free little museum and had a nice time. Clum was an interesting man and there are lots of things from when he was publishing his newspaper there. It's free and definitely worth going to!

“Go buy some papers!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Well worth the walk around the corner from Allen Street. Go buy some newspapers and read up on what the west was really like. Cool machines and friendly employee to welcome you!!
