From the newsroom: It’s our 14th anniversary!

Our anniversary

This week, we celebrate our 14th anniversary. On September 15th of 2005, Charlottesville Tomorrow published our first online article. Over the years, we’ve made lots of changes, but we continue our original commitment to engage our community through hyperlocal, nonprofit journalism.

Interested in the topics we covered those first months? Here’s a few:
