About

The Somerset Herald in Pennsylvania was the direct successor to the Herald and Whig and the Somerset Standard and a more distant relative of the Somerset Herald and Farmers’ and Mechanics’ Register. The Herald was a weekly newspaper from 1870 to 1929 (including a daily edition also called the Somerset Herald which appeared for one week in 1889 while court was in session) and a semiweekly from 1930 to 1936 when it ceased publication. Its nameplate carried the legend, “Established 1827”--perhaps a reference to the earliest Somerset Herald which began publication September 16, 1828, under George Mowry and which was also issued in a German edition.
