About the Spirit

Thanks for your interest in the Spirit of Jefferson!

The paper that began  in 1844 (when Charles Town was still part of Virginia) is now an award-winning weekly newspaper and online news provider.
Every Wednesday, count on us for vibrant sections devoted to local news, sports, viewpoints and more.
You’ll find extras all through the week and when news breaks both at spiritofjefferson.com and on Facebook.
We’re part of this community. The Spirit is a locally owned business. Craig See (whose family also owns the award-winning Hampshire Review in Romney) is publisher as well as Robert Snyder, who was hired as editor in August of 2011 and named editor-publisher in 2013.
We always welcome your story ideas, calendar items and other news as well as your feedback on how we’re doing. Write to editor@spiritofjefferson.com or mail a letter to 114 N. Charles St., Charles Town 25414.
