The building, third to house the company, has had 12 additions, plus some renovations, and has proved to be the roses rising from the ashes, said Joel Dunn, emeritus publisher of the Transcript-Bulletin.
...
"It was an old-frame building, and Dad was concerned about it burning down," Joel said.
In the autumn of 1932, those fears were realized. An early snowstorm that October broke a power line above the building, and the electrical sparks combined with the old wooden building to make a devastating fire. The building burned to the ground, taking all of the printing equipment with it.
Joel said replacing the equipment was out of the question, especially in the throws of the Depression, so Alex took the newspaper to a fellow publisher in Magna, who let him print it there late at night.
...
"Alex Dunn used people who owed him money to build as much as he could to cut down on costs," Joel said.
...
The archives, dating back to the late 19th century, were lost, Joel said, though some were eventually found going back to 1910 that had been kept in a nearby church house.
In its early years, the Transcript-Bulletin building was sandwiched between the local telephone company's switchboards on one side and a glass company on the other, while a gas station was situated north of that. Behind the building was a small house.
In the early 1950s, a second story was added onto the cement building, including a small apartment, which was rented out through the 1960s, Joel said. The remains of that apartment are still used today for storage of newspaper archives.
Joel said the tenants of the apartment seldom interacted with the bustling workers in the office portion of the building.
"At the time the press room was separate from the building, and there wasn't any machinery below it, just storage, so it was quiet," he said. "The only downside was that whoever lived there had to go up a back staircase to get up there."
In 1962, to accommodate a new set of presses, a new press room was built behind the original building. The off-set printing presses were faster and could handle more pages at once, besides being capable of doing different kinds of printing. Joel said those presses, cutting-edge at the time, brought in business from large companies from across the nation, including Josten's, a company that makes yearbooks, photo albums and class rings for high schools and colleges and championship rings for professional sports, including the Super Bowl.
...
Joel said most of the add-ons were done as a reflection of necessity, but the last was with an eye to the future.
"The long-term plan went in the last time we added on," he said, citing a storage room and space for future expansions in the most recent addition. "Also, at the same time we added a loading dock for semis, which takes our waste paper to a company in Washington state."
The series of additions to the building have mirrored the growth of the company's workforce, Joel said. At the time of the fire, four people reported and wrote the news and printed it. A few years later, the workforce increased to five. Now the company's workforce numbers 43, excluding the 85 or so newspaper carriers, making it one of the larger private employers in the city - besides being the oldest company still functioning in the county.
Joel said the combination of a relatively remote location and entrepreneurial attitude have played equal parts in crafting a legacy of self-sufficiency and progress that has been consistent throughout the company's 117-year history.
"It's been difficult to get help and expertise out here, so we've had to be more efficient," he said.
