About

Named after the train from the old Oregon railway, the Lebanon Express served the Mid-Willamette Valley region in Lebanon, Oregon. Legendary newspaperman Jacob H. Stine established the newspaper, publishing the first issue on March 5, 1887. Stine had started many newspapers in Oregon, Idaho, and Washington, including Grant's Pass Courier, Rogue River Courier, Heppner Weekly Gazette, Weiser City Leader, and Monmouth Democrat. After a year, Stine left the Lebanon Express. In 1891, a friend of Stine named N.C. Cook murdered Stine in a shooting incident in Independence, Oregon.
