MHS Centennial Business: Swan River Star & Times / Swan Valley Star & Times

The first issue of the Swan River Star appeared on 11 January 1900. W. H. Glendinning, in his “Salutatory” wrote: “It will be devoted to the interests of the Valley, will be independent of politics ... general news and editorials will always however be subordinated to the local.” The Swan Valley Times published its first issue in 1920, and that same year the two were amalgamated as the Star & Times. The paper has been designated as an MHS Centennial Business.
