LINTON, N.D. (AP) — The oldest business in Emmons County is marking 125 years.
The Emmons County Record first hit the stands on June 10, 1884, and sold 75 copies. Today the paper makes its way into the hands of 3,000 readers.
Darwin Reed Streeter started the Record. His great-grandson lives in California and reads the paper every week.
George Whitmore said he’s never met anyone in Linton, but he feels like he knows the people there.
