The Falls City Journal is a semiweekly newspaper serving Falls City, Nebraska and nearby communities. It changed from a daily to a semiweekly in 1994,[2] and launched a web edition in 2010.[3]

The Journal began as the Nemaha Valley Journal in 1868.[4][5] It replaced an earlier newspaper known as the Broadaxe.[5] It changed its name to the Falls City Globe-Journal in 1875, after merging with the Falls City Little Globe, and adopted its current name in 1882.[2]

Early publishers of the Journal included former Nebraska state senator Theodore Pepoon, who owned and operated the paper from 1881 to 1885.[6] Under Pepoon, the paper was known for its promotion of Radical Republican politics.
