About the newspaper[edit]

The Addison Courier served what was called the tri-county area of Lenawee County, Hillsdale County, and Jackson County, Michigan. It used a broadsheet tab from 1884 until 1951, when it switched to a tabloid-sized format. Primarily serving the interests of Addison residents, from 1922 until 1924, the Courier covered the Onsted, Michigan area when its newspaper, The Onsted News, briefly ceased publication. After the Courier closed in 1960, The Brooklyn Exponent absorbed the Addison area and added it to its weekly news coverage full-time in June 1965. Local daily newspapers, the Jackson Citizen Patriot and The Daily Telegram in Adrian also regularly publish Addison news.
