Colorado Historic Newspaper Collection

Colorado Historic Newspaper Collection

The Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection (CHNC) offers readers free online access to more than 909,000 digitized pages, representing 169+ individual newspaper titles published in Colorado primarily from 1859 to 1923 and some through 1962. CHNC will eventually hold more than 2.5 million pages from 275 newspapers.

Historical Records Preserved Through Digitization

Ongoing support for maintaining and providing access to CHNC is paid for with funds administered by the Colorado State Library. We continue to add new pages to the CHNC when community funding is located to pay the costs of digitization.

If you would like to help support Lake County Public Library's digitization projects please email or call 719-486-0569.
