History

The paper was founded as the weekly Augusta Gazette in 1785. In 1786, the paper was renamed The Georgia State Gazette. From 1789 to 1804, the paper was known as The Augusta Chronicle and Gazette of the State. Patrick Walsh, later a U.S. Senator, joined the editorial staff in 1866 and became owner in 1873. The paper was bought by Morris Communications, LLC, in 1945.

In addition to a daily online edition, the entire archives back to its founding have been made searchable on the Internet.
