Wednesday, March 15, 2023 marked the 27th year Branson Tri-Lakes News has inhabited its current location on Industrial Park Drive in Hollister.
The newspaper moved into the facility on March 15, 1996, and while it might seem odd to acknowledge 27 years, it also creates an opportunity to recognize the longevity of our news coverage in the Tri-Lakes community.
The move to Industrial Park Drive in 1996 was a necessity for a growing and thriving newspaper, which occupied space in downtown Branson. As tourism and population in the area grew, so did the news. The owners of the paper recognized a need for more space, 42,000 square feet of it, in order to better serve the local community.
