Corunna Now adaption of 1912 Corunna newspaper logo for Sesquicentennial coverage.

When your great, great grandparent picked up the local newspaper in Corunna, it might have looked something like this. The special Corunna Now Sesquicentennial logo is an adaption of a 1912 logo used by the long-defunct newspaper, The Corunna Journal.

The Corunna Journal was first published in 1880, known then as The Shiawassee County Journal. In 1887, the paper was sold to E. U. Gorsuch and the name changed to The Corunna Journal. It continued in publication until 1913.

It's one of many Corunna-based newspapers that has been published over the course of the last 150 years.
