Biography/HistoryThe Stanley Sun began publication in 1903 and ceased in 1950.
The Stanley Sun newspaper was published from this small building in 1916. Most small North Dakota towns had weekly newspapers which published local news and state, county, and city notices. Homesteaders had to publish three notices before they could make proof on their homesteads. Many small papers were forced out of business by the Nonpartisan League's State Printing Commission law in 1919.
