Jamestown Newspapers: 1910-2014
During most of its history, Jamestown hasn't had its own newspaper.
The first periodical, The Electric Spark, was published in 1910. Next, came the Town Crier, followed by the Jamestown Gazette, then The Islander, and, currently, The Jamestown Press - known as the "paper of record" for the island.
This week we celebrate the 25th birthday of the Jamestown Press. Read Rosemary Enright's article in The Press about The Press and all the newspapers that have served the Jamestown community.
