Ask the Truth

Loading...


 The very first edition of The Elkhart Truth hit the streets on the morning of October 15, 1889, proclaiming its mission: “Truth must manifest itself in every word published.”

The Truth, in its early days, didn’t even have local news on its front page. The other Elkhart newspapers were often targets of C.G. Conn’s ridicule.
