Fringe towns with some circulation but limited coverage include Willington, Union, Glastonbury and the city of Hartford.


The Journal Inquirer was formed in 1968 with the merging of two weekly newspapers, the Rockville Journal and the South Windsor Inquirer. The Rockville Journal dates back over 100 years.

The paper moved from a garage in the Rockville section of Vernon to its present location in Manchester in 1974.

JI style: Contrary to popular practice, the Journal Inquirer defies AP Style and embraces the oxford comma. Somebody has to.
