Inscription.  The South San Francisco Enterprise Journal covered local news for more than a century. Starting in 1895, the South City Printing Company began publishing the Enterprise, a free local newspaper. In 1927, the Enterprise was bought by the South San Francisco Journal and in 1936 the Enterprise Journal was incorporated as the Industrial City Publishing Company. The Enterprise Journal was the first newspaper west of the Mississippi to use offset presses. By 2000, the Enterprise Journal was the oldest continuous offset paper in the nation. Its last issue was printed in 2004.
