The newspaper, serving the Armenian American community, was established as a weekly in on May 1, 1899, making it one of the longest-running Armenian publications. In June 1913, it started publishing once every two days, and in December 1915, it became a daily newspaper, with continuous publication until 1991, when it was turned into a weekly publication because of reduction in readership.
Hairenik published early stories by William Saroyan, such as "The Broken Wheel" (1933), written under the name Sirak Goryan.
Hairenik Association Inc (Հայրենիք Հաստատութիւն in Armenian) also published "Hairenik Monthly" from 1922 to 1967 and "Hairenik Quarterly" from 1968 to 1971.
Hairenik Association Inc also publishes Armenian Weekly since 1934.
