Our Company

Welcome to “The Press Recorder“. This site includes all the news and community features published in our newspaper along with classified and real estate listings, directories, tourist information, as well as the weekly events calender covering Chautauqua County, New York and the surrounding towns.


In 2015, we celebrated our 30th anniversary as the community newspaper of Chautauqua County. The newspaper and the other print products, as well as this internet site, are published by The Press Recorder, which is owned by Robert and Barbara Dickinson, who serve as editors, and by the Mathew McCalister, who is the publisher.

The Press Recorder was founded in the fall of 1989, and since then it has become the most popular newspaper for year-round residents as well as visitors. We serve a readership of wide-ranging interests, culture, and diversity.
