Vilas County came into existence April 12, 1893, and April 22, the first issue of the Eagle River Democrat made its appearance.

One week after the creation of Vilas County in 1893, the village had two newspapers.


From then until 1927, the two newspapers continued to publish separately, and their ownership and management changed several times.


The Satrans sold the paper March 1, 1985, to Delphos Herald Inc. of Delphos, Ohio, a newspaper group made up primarily of small-town weeklies.
