The newspaper’s original owner, Charles Holly, was a strong proponent of reading. He promoted books in his own circulating library and was one of the founders of the Ferguson Library in Stamford. After Holly’s death in 1848, the paper changed owners. In 1892 the Gillespie family bought the newspaper and made it a daily. In 1977, they sold the paper to Times Mirror Company, the owner of The Los Angeles Times. In June 2000, Tribune Company bought Times Mirror and incorporated The Advocate into its holdings. In 2003, the paper started a Norwalk edition and moved its headquarters to the Tresser Boulevard and Washington Avenue location in downtown Stamford.
