The Wadena Pioneer Journal has moved to 320 Jefferson Street South in Wadena, in the former home of Home Town Abstract and Title. Michael Johnson/Pioneer Journal

The Wadena Pioneer Journal staff have landed in a new home at 320 Jefferson Street South in Wadena.

Local staff made the move Friday, Oct. 29, out of the previous location behind the Cozy Theatre. The new space is in the former Home Town Abstract and Title building, next to the former Rick's Barber Shop. The new location offers more ease of access for our customers looking to do business with us.

We're still working on getting some signage up at the new location, so we apologize for any confusion in the meantime.

Local staff here can help you with your news needs. From our local journalism to advertising options, we can help you publish your message to the world.
