The Lincoln Courier is the only local daily newspaper for Lincoln, Illinois, and its surrounding circulation area, which includes Logan County. The newspaper is owned by Fairport, New York-based GateHouse Media.[2] Founded in 1889, the Courier traces its history back to 1855-1856 through one of the newspapers it acquired, the Lincoln Weekly Herald.

Founded as the Lincoln Daily Courier in 1889,[1] the newspaper through the years absorbed several other dailies based in Lincoln, such as the Daily Star (founded c. 1911 as The Lincoln Morning Star[3]) and The Daily News-Herald, which itself dated back to The Daily News (October 20, 1890 (1890-10-20)[4]} and The Lincoln Weekly Herald (c. 1855[5]). Like other businesses founded in Lincoln, Illinois, the Lincoln Weekly Herald was one of the first firms named in honor of then-future President Abraham Lincoln.
