About

A duo of short-lived weekly papers published on both sides of the Red River eventually coalesced in 1879 into the Wahpeton (North Dakota)Times. A. de Lacy Wood, an itinerant Minnesota newspaperman started the Red River Free Press in Breckinridge, Minnesota, in 1879. Kentucky native George P. Garred purchased the Free Press in 1880 and published it until 1884 when it became known variously as Wahpeton Times or simply theTimes until May 21, 1885, when the Wahpeton Times moniker was formally adopted.
