Voices of Laurel is a free quarterly newspaper for the community.

In addition to new content from The Laurel History Boys, it is an outlet for contributions from the diverse Laurel community. People with stories, photos, and artifacts enhance our mission of bringing local history to you.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have distributed quantities of the printed newspapers to locally owned small businesses free of charge, allowing them to make Voices of Laurel available to their customers in an effort to increase their foot traffic.
