520 1 $a The Fort Pierce (FL) News [LCCN sn96027172] was originally published by Arthur B. Brosn as a weekly from 1903 through November 9, 1917. From November 15, 1917 through 1920, the newspaper published triweekly. On March 1, 1920, the Fort Pierce News merged with the St. Lucie County (FL) Tribune [LCCN sn89058426] to form the Fort Pierce (FL) News-Tribune [LCCN sn96027171]. The St. Lucie County Tribune was the Fort Pierce News' younger rival, the News being two years older than the Tribune. Fort Pierce (FL) is a city in St. Lucie County (FL) and sits on the Indian River astride Florida's Atlantic Ocean coast. It was incorporated in 1901 and named as the new county's seat of government in 1905. St. Lucie County was formed in 1905 from southern Brevard County (FL). Between 1917 and 1925, various parts of St. Lucie County were separated to form Okeechobee County (FL), Martin County (FL), and Palm Beach County (FL). Fishing was key to the early economy of the City of Fort Pierce. Pineapple was the agricultural king of St. Lucie County from the turn of the 20th century until its collapse following World War I. Fort Pierce News reports on river traffic and the occasional steamboat groundings, the birth of St. Lucie County, and nearby Indian reservations, etc. With the advance of the railroads into southern Florida along Atlantic coast routes, additional reporting is given to rail lines and tourism. Some reports suggest that the Fort Pierce News began as early as December 1902.--E. Kesse, University of Florida Digital Library Center.
