The Lewis and Clark Journal began as a weekly newspaper in 2004 and evolved into a monthly human interest and events piece a little more than a year later.

Published for many years by Main Street Office, the Lewis and Clark Journal was taken over in March 2022 by Jack Smith and Melissa Jenkins and is now published by the Three Forks Voice weekly newspaper.

The LCJ continues to pair dynamic imagery with well-written stories of interest to local readers as well as information on area events for the month. It also provides a cost effective means for advertisers to spread their message to those in and around the Three Forks community.

Supported solely by advertising, the new Lewis & Clark Journal features a clean layout and strong content that has been a staple of the community for nearly two decades.

We encourage our readers to engage, reflect, and enjoy! As an advertiser, you can be assured that our beautiful look and creative direction will reflect well on your brand.
