The Morgan Hill Times is a weekly newspaper in Morgan Hill, California. It is Morgan Hill’s oldest continually operating business, tracing its history back to the Morgan Hill Sun, founded by George Edes on April 12, 1894.[1]

A dozen years later, a second paper, The Times, was founded. Shortly thereafter, the two papers were combined under the name of The Sun-Times. Following the turn of the century, The Sun was dropped from the name and the paper has continued as the Morgan Hill Times to the present.[2]

The Morgan Hill Times was purchased by The McClatchy Company on July 1, 1979 from Welton L. Pollard, then was acquired by the Mainstreet Media Group, LLC from Pacific Sierra Publishing Company in 2004.[3][4] In 2014, MainStreet sold its Bay Area papers, including the Morgan Hill Times and Gilroy Dispatch, to Metro Newspapers.[5]
