Chattahoochee Newspaperss

Chattahoochee County does not have a newspaper. It depends on Columbus and Stewart County newspapers to print items from Chattahoochee County.

Columbus Ledger-Enquirer

Columbus Sun (no longer in existence)

An older catalogue of available resources stated: "Columbus-Enquirer-Sun, Jan 1, 1880-June 1, 1934. 111 vol. Daily paper established in 1874, successor to Columbus Enquirer and Daily Sun; in June 1934, paper reverted to original name of Columbus Enquirer chron. by date issued. No index. Pr. Aver. 600 pp. 23 x 18 x 2. 28 vols. 1880-1908, public library strm.; 83 vols., 1908-34, sup ct. clk bsmt. va." I have been advised that this information may be inaccurate and the location of these volumes is in question. It is hoped that these can be found and this may serve as a starting point for someone to look for them.

Columbus State University library also is a very good source. The Reference Department of the W. C. Bradley Library has microfilm copies of the Columbus newspapers, beginning 1828, some papers are missing.
