The Addison County Independent is a weekly newspaper located in Middlebury, VT that covers Addison County. The paper was founded in 1946 as the Addison Independent [1] and is now owned and published by Angelo Lynn.[2] The paper is a member of the New England Newspapers and Press Association,[3] and in 2016, the paper won the award of first place for general excellence in its class from the association.[4] The paper is published weekly on Thursdays.


The Addison Independent was founded in 1946 by William J. Slator and his wife Celine.[5][6] At the time they owned Addison Press, Inc. which published the paper as well as served a commercial printing plant.[5] In 1955 the newspaper name changed to The Addison County Independent.[6]

In 1976 William J. Slator sold the Addison County Independent to Gordon T. Mills, who was the editor for the Burlington Free Press.[5]

In 1984 the current owner, Angelo Lynn, purchased the paper.[7] In 1988, Lynn changed the publication schedule to twice-weekly,[8] which continued until April 2020 when it shifted to weekly publication during the COVID-19 pandemic.[citation needed]
