Norfolk Newspaper Company, based in Mansfield, Massachusetts, USA, founded three weekly newspapers in the suburbs south of Boston before being bought by Fidelity Investments in 1990 and dissolved into Community Newspaper Company six years later.
Norfolk was one of Fidelity's first acquisitions as it built CNC in the 1990s. It was dissolved in early 1996, when CNC realigned its operating units by geography, assigning the papers to its new West Unit.
At the time of its sale to CNC, Norfolk consisted of the following weeklies:
- Vennochi, Joan. "Fidelity's Quiet Venture into Newspapers". The Boston Globe, June 23, 1991.
- Cassidy, Tina. "Community Newspaper Realigns Properties". The Boston Globe, January 12, 1996.
