The Reporter News is Abilene's oldest business and was founded in a tent by Charles E. Gilbert in 1881, just a few months after the town was founded. The first copies of the newspaper were printed on a “G Wash” press similar to the one on display at the Abilene Reporter News). The building, although not an historic structure, has a Texas State Historic Marker noting the paper's prominent role in Abilene's growth and development.
