Every Wednesday, The Breckenridge News, and it's eight seven-column pages would provide a mix of local community and political news, a sampling of broad general interest stories, and opinion pieces by local columnists.   John D. Babbage, the owner, started The Breckenridge News on July 22, 1876 and continued publication until his death in 1934. His daughter, Mildred Babbage, took over the paper as editor until her death in 1949. The paper was then taken over by W.G. Polk, the grandson of John D. Babbage, ending one year later. You can read the full history of The Breckenridge Newspaper of Cloverport, KY by clicking on this ~ link ~.

The Breckenridge News is a wonderful source for me to discover and learn of the daily happenings of my ancestors and extended family members.
