Stillwater News Press logo

The Stillwater News Press can be traced to the weekly Stillwater Advance and the Stillwater Daily Democrat, which date back to 1892. In 1941, C.R. Bellati, originally an attorney from Blackwell, was responsible for consolidating the Stillwater Daily News and Stillwater Daily Press, which established the present-day Stillwater News Press. The News Press operated under the ownership of the Bellati family until it was sold to Community Newspapers Holding Inc., Montgomery, Ala.
