Quincy's Historical Newspaper Archive

About the Historical Newspaper Archive
Historical Quincy newspapers published in the years 1835 through approximately 1919 are now available online! Through a special digitization and distillation process, images and text from microfilmed newspapers have been enhanced, indexed, and stored digitally for ease of searching and retrieval. The newspaper archive can be searched by date, name or keyword, or even using a combination of search terms. Articles can be viewed and printed, saved to diskette, pasted into a document, or even emailed to a friend! 

Funding for this project was awarded by the Illinois State Library (ISL), a Division of the Office of Secretary of State, using funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), under the federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA). Additional funding was provided by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.  If you would like to support our effort to expand the years of newspapers available online, please contact the Quincy Public Library!
