The Observer, also known as the Washington County Observer and the WCObserver serves residents in the towns and countryside of Washington County, Arkansas.
Under its current ownership a weekly newspaper was published on February 2, 2010. It revived the name of a weekly paper that was published for 27 years before shuttering its doors in 1999.
The Observer suspended the print edition in March, 2012 and focused exclusively on the online format.
The format, ownership and frequency of publication may have changed over the years but the mission remains constant. At the Observer, we’re committed to a single objective: giving readers a local perspective on news, culture and commentary.
We have local writers covering municipal and county government, culture and community life in our readership area. Our feature stories spotlight the newsworthy notables as well as chronicling the everyday lives of ordinary people.
We are a community-centered publication and invite submissions of stories and photos from our readers.
We hope we’ll be able to count you as one of thousands of regular visitors to our website.
