The Country Gazette office is in Milford at 159 South Main Street. It 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 1980s, the Gazette was direct-mailed each Wednesday to the towns of Franklin, Wrentham, Bellingham, Medway, Millis, Norfolk and Plainville. Ellen Albanese 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.
