According to a 1962 edition of the Carnavall Reporter newspaper, a sirloin steak cost 79 cents a pound, eggs were 33 cents a dozen, and 2 pounds of Hills Brothers Coffee could be bought for 98 cents.

The Duvall Historical Society is excited to announce that all of the Duvall Citizen newspapers (October, 1911-December, 1916) and Carnavall Reporter newspapers (June, 1953-November, 1964) are now available to view on-line at http://duv.stparchive.com, available on the Duvall Historical Society website. Digital copies of many other community newspapers can also be found on this site.

These newspapers are probably the most complete source for information about businesses, people, and events in the local community’s history, as they provide a firsthand view of its development, problems, triumphs, and attitudes. The papers can be searched by year or by subject.

This project was made possible by a grant from 4Culture. The Duvall Historical Society also thanks the King County Library System for their assistance. Look for links to the site at the Duvall Historical Society’s website at www.duvallhistoricalsociety.org.
