The Washington Missourian is the Franklin County paper based in Washington, Missouri. The paper is owned by Missourian Publishing Company, a family-owned company. James L. Miller, Sr. purchased the paper in 1937, and turned the then-struggling local weekly into the award-winning paper that it is today.
It is the most read local paper inside Franklin County and is available and read in many St. Louis County cities, such as Eureka. It has won and continues to win many awards for general excellence in its reporting, photography, and content.
