The Woodburn Independent is a weekly paper published in Woodburn, Oregon, United States, and also covering the cities of Hubbard, Aurora, Donald, Gervais, St. Paul and Mt. Angel, and the surrounding area of Marion County.[2] The Independent was founded in 1888.[1] It is published on Wednesdays by Pamplin Media Group and has a circulation of 3,407.[1] In 1999, Saturday editions were added, but the bi-weekly service ceased on August 31, 2011, and reverted to Wednesday-only issues.


The paper was established by Leonard H. McMahan (1866–1957).[3] He was a member of the Oregon House of Representatives during the 1923 Legislature, and was Marion County Circuit Judge from 1924–1943.[3] McMahan's former home in Salem is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the David McCully House. In January 2013, the paper was sold to the Pamplin Media Group along with five other papers owned by Eagle Newspapers.[4][5]
