For more than 130 years, The Laurinburg Exchange has served the people of Scotland County as their primary source of news, as well as a guide to satisfy the community’s appetite for goods and services through advertising of local merchants. The Exchange traces its heritage back to 1882, when O.L. Moore began the newspaper as a weekly publication. In its masthead from the turn of the century, the newspaper stated that was “dedicated to the service of Scotland County and the promotion of progress in all departments of community and public life.” Initially published every Thursday, the newspaper eventually grew to two days a week and then three. The newspaper is now published Tuesdays through Saturdays. The newspaper is at 211 W. Cronly St. in Laurinburg. You may reach us at 910-276-2311 or by fax at 910-249-6706.
