About The Advance

The Alden Advance is a weekly newspaper that has been serving the Alden, Conger, Freeborn and the surrounding Freeborn County  MN areas for over 120 years.   The Advance (as locals like to call it) is published on Thursday, but you can get early editions on Wednesday afternoon at the following locations:  Petrol Pumper/BP, Freeborn County Co Op, Hometown Sweets and Snacks, Accents, Main Street Bar & Grill.

We remain a strong part of the community because the focus has always been reporting the local news with integrity and an eye on what matters to the people who live here.  These days we like to say it has all the news you can’t find on Google!

Please direct any questions or comments to the editor. 

We are located at 150 East Main Street in Alden.
