MHS Centennial Business: Grandview Exponent

The Grand View Exponent was first published on 7 March 1901. It expressed the desire to “use its modest means and influence for the growth and development of town, and district.” The opportunity came when the Rural Municipality of Grandview was formed on June 1st that year. The Chaloner family had been involved in the newspaper since 1922 and the business had remained on Main Street, Grandview since its inception. Designated as an MHS Centennial Business, the newspaper closed in February 2017.
