About

Originally founded in 1863 as The Seattle Gazette only to be renamed The Weekly Intelligencer by new owner Samuel L. Maxwell in 1867, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer (P-I) served as the region's pioneering newspaper and Seattle's oldest continually operating business. In a land rich with timber, minerals, and waterways, the P-I served a growing community of 150 persons in 1860. Having survived over 11 moves and more than 17 owners, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer as of March 2009 no longer prints news in broadsheet, but remains an active force in the world of digital publishing.
