Lancaster Newspapers, published on this site of Francis Bailey's colonial printshop, trace their roots to the Lancaster Journal of 1794. the Journal was published and edited by William Hamilton and Henry Willcocks. It merged with the Intelligencer, founded in 1799, which today is the thirteenth oldest newspaper in the United States. In 1880, Intelligencer publishers and attorneys W. Uhler Hensel and Andrew J. Steinman successfully pursued a landmark press freedom case before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. The Intelligencer journal, Lancaster New Era (1877) and Sunday News (1923) make up Lancaster Newspapers today.
