Founded in October 1957 by Joseph J. Falter, the St. John Valley Times is a weekly newspaper based in Madawaska, Maine. St. John Valley Times circulates approximately 6,000 copies per week. The paper is distributed on Wednesdays to the residents of the St. John Valley, a large area in Maine located along the Saint John River, and Aroostook County. Because the residents of the St. John Valley are largely a population of Acadian and Québec descent, the publisher prints some articles and editorials in both French and English. St. John Valley Times also provides other services including custom printing in their in-house print shop. The St. John Valley Times celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2007.
