The Basin Times is Basin’s first newspaper. The Basin Times Company published the first issue in 1894 at the height of the mining boom in the town and billed the paper as independent and focused on local and regional mining news in the “Cataract country.” By the end of its run, The Basin Times called itself a Republican newspaper and included increasingly more coverage of politics in Basin, Butte, and other area towns. The publishers stopped publishing in Basin in 1896 and took the paper to Butte, where it became The Butte Times.
