In 1967, Neil Ellis, a real estate developer with an interest in journalism, bought two weekly newspapers, the Rockville Journal and South and East Windsor Inquirer. The weeklies were merged into the daily Journal Inquirer in 1968.
The paper moved from a garage in the Rockville section of Vernon to its present location in Manchester in 1974. The Rockville Journal dates back over 105 years.
Elizabeth S. Ellis, the founder's partner, oversaw paper’s expansion during her tenure as publisher from 1970 until her death in 2020. As a female-in-charge, she was a rarity in journalism.
The regional paper prints in three editions:
- 1st edition: Enfield, Somers, Suffield, East Windsor, Windsor and Windsor Locks.
- 2nd edition: Manchester, East Hartford, Bolton, Andover, Coventry and Hebron.
- 3rd edition: Vernon, Ellington, Tolland, South Windsor, and Stafford.
