We are excited to present, in weekly installments, excerpts from our microfilmed collection of local historical newspapers. Each week, we will select an article or advertisement to highlight here.
Most of our posts will come from historical editions of The Chatham Record, as that publication makes up the bulk of our collection.
This blog is intended to be a dialogue with our readers. We know that many of you know a great deal about our local history, and we would love to hear from you if a name or event mentioned in a post stirs a memory or association for you. Please note that because this is a public forum, all comments will be archived as part of the public record.
We look forward to exploring our past with you!
