The state's oldest continually running newspaper is gearing up for a birthday party -- its 137th.
Everyone is invited to stop in at the new office at 580 Mallory Way from 3-7 p.m. Wednesday to help the Appeal celebrate 137 years of news in the capital city.
Gifts, tours of the new building, cake and pressmen's hats are just some of the events planned for the day.
As a special treat, come by and print your own headline using a 19th century proof press.
The fifth home for the Appeal helps bring the technology of the 21st century in line with the memory of 137 years of capital city news. With two stories and 90,000 square feet in size, the building is home to the printing operations of six Tahoe-Carson Area Newspapers as well as the news group's business office, advertising production and classified advertising call center.
The move was made March 8 to make room for new Dauphin Graphics Machines press and operations grown too large for the 200 Bath St. building the Appeal called home since 1974.
Carson City residents have relied on the Appeal for news since its first edition hit the streets May 16, 1865. The Appeal is proud to be the oldest business in Carson City and invites our readers to come visit us at our new home.
Though our open house is set for Wednesday afternoon, tours are available for groups throughout the year by calling 882-2111.
To find us, take Roop Street south past Governor's Field and turn left on Mallory Way. From the south, take Roop Street north to Fairview Drive, turn right on Mallory Way just past the traffic light.
