More about this newspaper

Early-day Polson, Montana, located on the shores of Flathead Lake, boasted two weekly newspapers, The Flathead Courier and The Lake Shore Sentinel. Their stories, pictures, and ads give a clear glimpse into Lake County life during the early years of the twentieth century. Both newspapers show the vibrant history of this prospering region. In 1911, the Sentinel consolidated with the Courier. World news continued to mingle with editorials, homesteading news, school happenings, births and deaths, and farm and ranch news, along with details like stage coach and ferry schedules. In 1990, the Courier was merged with two other newspapers to form The Lake County Leader.
