The Country Gazette was founded by William and Doris Baldwin in 1981. The free bi-weekly newspaper launched its first edition at the 1981 Franklin Trade Show. In the 80s, the Gazette was direct mailed each Wednesday to the towns of Franklin, Wrentham, Bellingham, Medway, Millis, Norfolk and Plainville. Ellen Albanese soon joined the staff as Editor and within a few years the paper grew to semi-weekly editions, with the advent of the Gazette's Weekender edition on Saturdays.
