The Detroit Free Press

Older than the state of Michigan, the Detroit Free Press began publishing as the Democratic Free Press and Michigan Intelligencer on the morning of May 5, 1831. Michigan's oldest daily newspaper, it supported the drive for statehood, helped establish the Associated Press and sent reporters to Civil War battlefields. By the time the paper moved in July 1998 to this Albert Kahn designed building, the Free Press staff had earned eight Pulitzer Prizes.
