The Granite Quill began publishing in 1989 when Hillsborough natives Leigh and Joyce Bosse purchased The Messenger, a local weekly newspaper published continuously since 1868. (read more on our history page). Since then we have added several other publications in our ongoing effort to better serve our local communities.

Our publications include:

The Messenger – There’s big news in small towns and The Messenger covers it all. From bake sales to burglaries, The Messenger is your source for town and school news, high school sports, events and happenings throughout the area.

In New Hampshire is your monthly guide to what’s happening in the Granite State. From the seacoast to the White Mountains, in cities or small towns, New Hampshire is a four-season wonderland.

Homefront  is your source for home owners or home seekers. Whether buying, selling or remodeling, you’ll find the information you need to stay ahead of the crowd.

Senior Lifestyles is your guide for active New Hampshire seniors. Today’s senior is a different person than their parents or grandparents. They live longer, healthier lives and are more active and affluent than prior generations.  Senior Lifestyles reflects those changes in it’s features and advertisers.

We also publish two annual magazines. Our Winter release of Bridal Guide provides a wealth of information to help plan your most special day. And the winter Holiday Guide will help you with all of your holiday shopping.
