Fall is officially here, and so are more Ohio newspapers on Chronicling America, the Library of Congress’s free digital newspaper database! Issues from the following newspapers are now online and keyword-searchable:
- From Cadiz (Harrison County)
- From Carrollton (Carroll County)
- From Delaware (Delaware County)
- From Jackson (Jackson County)
- From Somerset (Perry County)
- From Upper Sandusky (Wyandot County)
Check out these and Ohio’s other digitized newspapers for articles about fall-related happenings of all kinds: festivals and fairs, elections fought (then won or lost), corn bread recipes for Thanksgiving, school being back in session and much more!
Chronicling America is brought to you by the National Digital Newspaper Program, a partnership between the National Endowment for the Humanities, Library of Congress and state projects to provide enhanced access to United States newspapers published between 1836 and 1922. National Endowment for the Humanities awards support state projects to select and digitize historically significant titles that are aggregated and permanently maintained by the Library of Congress at Chronicling America. As part of the project, the Ohio History Connection contributed over 300,000 newspaper pages to the project between July 2008 and August 2014 and will contribute an additional 15,000 pages by the end of June 2015. For more information about this project and resources for searching Chronicling America, please visit the National Digital Newspaper Program in Ohio Project Wiki or Ohio Digital Newspaper Program Website.
