A Look Back at Newspapers in Rolling Prairie
By: Gloria Arndt
As early as 1884 there was movement to incorporate the town of Rolling Prairie according to "The Daily Bee", a small (approximately 2" by 3") newspaper.
The newspaper was published in Rolling Prairie by Robert Burroughs. Mr. Burroughs was described as a "juvenile editor" by the Michigan City Enterprise newspaper.
The earliest known paper published by Burroughs was 1883. In 1884 the newspaper was called the "Rolling Prairie Bee" and had increased in size (4 " by 3"). Under the banner of the newspaper was printed "Small Beginnings Sometimes Have Great Endings".
The tiny newspaper reported local doings as follows: "Mr. C. Towner wishes whoever borrowed his wheelbarrow sometime ago to return it or inform him where he may get it." "Miss Kitty Worden has returned from her visit in Michigan ." "The gross proceeds of the social last Wednesday night amount to nearly $13.00." "The M. W. parsonage has a new well." {{"We are pleased to note the fact that Mr. B.F. McCarty has built a stone sidewalk by his Blacksmith Shop. It is the only walk of its kind in the city." }}}
