Booneville Democrat

The oldest business in the city of Booneville, the Booneville Democrat has come off of the press on a weekly basis for over 114 years. The first issue of the Booneville Democrat was printed Feb. 10, 1899. H. T. Hampton, the founder and original publisher had slogged across Booneville Creek in a wagon loaded with family belongings a short time before that first publication of the paper. [1]
