Western Star has clear title to being the oldest
WEEKLY, but the Chillicothe Gazette is not only a daily but also older then
the Star. Gazette can trace its lineage to 1800 for sure (possibly it
dates to 1797) and the Star was founded in 1807 by John McClean.
Gazette was moved to Chillicothe from Cincinnati by Edmon Freemon. Its
early name was Scioto Gazette. It became a daily near the turn of the
century and switched to Chillicothe Gazette in 1940. Its offices today
are a bit more pretentious than at its founding. The building is a
replica of Ohio's first statehouse, from the time Chillicothe was Ohio's
capital. (from article in Null Collections at Local History Library)
