  • Tags: The Wayne County Democrat

Although newspapers allowed Wooster’s citizens to remain informed about legal, local, national, and agricultural news, they also provided much needed entertainment through the inclusion of poems or excerpts from literature.

Many members of the public, including businesses, used the newspaper as a way of selling their goods from law books and dictionaries to livestock and farm equipment.

Wooster’s lawyers and doctors would take out advertisements in the local papers such as the Wayne County Democrat to announce their services and location to hopefully attract more business.

This advertisement for a local mill showcases the common services that mills such as the Stibbs Mill in Wooster would have offered, such as providing families with flour to make bread.
