Marion Co TOC
Graphics by Rhio
Marion Co, AR was formed 29 Sep 1836 and for the next 37 years the citizens of the county depended on out-of-town newspapers. The first local paper printed in the County was the Gazette founded in Mar 1873 by Frank Mason. The newspaper office was located in Yellville and due to lack of financial support closed a scant 17 months later. The next paper, The Post, did slightly better - lasting two years, until it also closed for lack of financial support.
