About

Residents of northeastern Vermont have been reading the Caledonian since 1837. A weekly edition was published until 1958 under various titles, including the Caledonian (1837 to 1867), St. Johnsbury Caledonian (1867 to 1919 and again in 1920), and the Weekly Caledonian (1919 to 1920). The weekly merged with a competitor in 1920, and was issued as the St. Johnsbury Republican until 1958. Following another merger, the weekly ended as the St. Johnsbury Republican & Vermont Union Journal later in 1958. A daily edition appeared as the St. Johnsbury Daily Caledonian from 1916 to 1918, the Evening Caledonian from 1918 to 1920, and the Caledonian-Record from 1920 to the present. When the 3rd Vermont Infantry Regiment assembled at Camp Baxter in St. Johnsbury during June and July 1861, the paper issued a special edition called the St. Johnsbury Tri-Weekly Caledonian, and then the Daily Caledonian, to give the community news about the Civil War and activities at the camp. It ceased when the soldiers headed south in late July.
