About Us

The Territorial News is a long established publication serving the South East Valley of the Sun, primarily East Mesa, North Gilbert, Apache Junction and Gold Canyon, AZ.   We publish every other Wed. October through June, monthly July, Aug and Sept. Our average distribution is 15,000 copies per issue, however seasonally we distribute an additional 5,000 copies to our winter visitors, and mail hundreds of issues to those who wish to receive the paper in their home towns.

Our unique, fun Wild West format has made the Territorial News one of the most sought after and read papers in the area, with over four million copies having been printed.

We do not deliver door to door so we know that every copy is picked up intentionally from one of our 250 distribution sites for the old west stories and the many advertisements by the local merchants.

Owners Ralph Henderson and David Stanfel encourage you to pick up a copy of the Territorial News and become hooked on the rich history of the Southwest and our western way of life.
