Biographical / Historical

The newspaper began publishing as The Providence Daily Journal in 1832. In 1868, the Journal began to publish the afternoon paper The Evening Bulletin. In 1872 the first diner in America, a horse-drawn wagon serving hot food, was founded to serve the employees of the Providence Journal. The Journal dropped "Daily" from its name and became The Providence Journal in 1920. In 1992, the Bulletin was discontinued and its name was appended onto that of the morning paper: The Providence Journal-Bulletin. After beginning online service in 1995, the Journal established in 1996. In 1998, the paper's name was shortened back to The Providence Journal.
