Conversion of the Historical Society’s collection of newspapers that had been microfilmed has been completed. Past issues of the following newspapers, between the years of 1853 to 1945, are available for viewing at:

There are some gaps in the collection – not all issues are available for all years for all papers, but there is a wealth of information of interest in those that are represented.

Additionally, we have many other resources available for your genealogy research needs including maps, newspapers, microfilm, assessor records, school records, and yearbooks.

Open Memorial Day to Labor Day on Saturdays and Sundays from 1:00-4:00pm
Also available by appointment.
