About

The Newberry Herald and News arose in Newberry County, South Carolina, at the end of the Civil War, during a time of scarcity and uncertainty. Guided by stalwart editors like Thomas Ferguson Greneker and Elbert Herman Aull, the Herald and News not only survived obstacles and changes in ownership, but it ran for over sixty years. It served as witness to a number of historical developments including the rise of sharecropping after the war, the building of the Newberry and Chester and Newberry and Augusta railroads (chartered in 1873 and 1874, respectively), and the emergence of the cotton industry beginning in 1884 with the establishment of the Newberry Cotton Mill.
