Twin Valley Publications was founded in 1888 as a local news paper, to serve the community of West Alexandria and surrounding areas. The business has grown and changed over the years, serving not only the Preble county area, but communities in Montgomery County. We print and circulate about 6,000 papers a week with "The Advertiser" and “Twin Valley News”, and 3,000 per week with "The Lakengren Viking", a paper made exclusively for this community located in Eaton Ohio.
