The Augusta Chronicle stands today as one of this community's oldest institutions.
When it began in 1785 in a printing shop on what is now Fifth Street, George Washington was not yet president, much of Georgia was still Indian territory and no one knew what the future held for the town that was growing on the banks of the Savannah River.
For 225 years, however, that future has been told regularly in the pages of this newspaper.
