The Ford County Record has a new home while continuing to bring news and information to the Ford County community.

The newspaper is now located at 124 W. State St, Suite 8, in Paxton.

The Record had to vacate its previous office on Market Street after the former newspaper owners sold that building at auction in mid-August.
