Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers

Welcome to Chronicling America, enhancing access to America's historic newspapers. This site allows you to search and view newspaper pages from 1880-1922 and find information about American newspapers published between 1690-present. Chronicling America is sponsored jointly by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Library of Congress as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The soaring description above is actually quite misleading. In reality, less than a hundred newspapers are actually available online. However, the collection does include a goodly number from Kentucky and a few from Virginia, and if the site just happens to have a newspaper of interest to you, it is a goldmine.

We can only hope that a great many more newspapers are added to this collection in the not too distant future.
