Head up to Minster, Ohio, and visitors can sample good German food and imbibe while taking part in the yearly feast of beers known as Octoberfest. Beyond the beer and the festivities, in no other place in America has German history and culture taken root. Established long ago by German settlers, the town’s streets and avenues, named for German towns, are reminders of the culture of the people who migrated from Cincinnati through the Miami-Erie Canal.
Today, the town and its inhabitants enjoy the quality of life that smaller city’s embody, including the community-based paper Minster Community Post. Also known as The Post, the paper is a weekly that publishes on Thursday to Minster, Fort Loramie, Osgood, Yorkshire, Maria Stein, and New Bremen. In addition to covering area news, the paper’s mission is to chronicle the lives of the people (and events) who make Minster a great community.
The first papers in Minster were a German and English one that preceded the paper that would become the Post by six years. The Minster Post was launched in 1896 and would be published in both English and German until 1918. The paper ran as a weekly and covered events in Auglaize County.
The paper ran under this moniker for close to 70 years and then adopted its present-day name the Minster Community Post. Throughout its more than 120 years, the paper has continued to publish weekly and has increased its circulation to 1500. Currently, the paper is owned by Horizon Publications, Inc.
