The offices of the Holmes County Advertiser and Washington County News are now operating out of a new location, parent company Kent Smith Group announced Monday.  

The office for the community newspapers did not have far to go, having moved just across the street from its old location on North Railroad Avenue in Chipley to 1367 B South Railroad Avenue.

The new office is located between Box Car Coffee and Sage Brand Studio.

‘We are still putting final touches on our new space, but we are open to the public,’ said Publisher Carol Kent. ‘Once we have everything in place – hopefully within the next few weeks – we will host an open house and official ribbon cutting.’

Kent says the plan is to feature historical themes representing each county, as well as offer a welcoming place for visitors to browse the archives for genealogical and other research.

‘I often say that among our other duties to the community, we are the keepers of history,’ said Kent. ‘The residents make the memories, and we put them in what ultimately is a scrapbook of sorts. We feel it is important that the community is able to access those memories, whether made by them or by someone from years ago.’
