Overview[edit]

The Times can trace its history back to 1890. However, the more recent version dates back to 1958.[2]

In 1890, J.F. Westmoreland – the brother of D.S. Westmoreland, founder of Thomasville's first chair factory – began publishing a weekly newspaper. The paper later merged with The Chairtown News to become The News-Times. This paper was later absorbed by The Tribune.

In 1958, The Tribune was purchased by The High Point Enterprise and became The Thomasville Times. It became Thomasville's first daily newspaper. The first editor was Wint Capel.
