Explore Huron Newspapers

The digitization of historical Huron County newspapers from microfilm and hard copy holdings is an ongoing long-term project that will continue for years into the future. Public access to newspapers is limited by copyright (current to 50 years after death of publisher); newspapers with current copyright restrictions will not be posted online without the permission of the publisher.  Newspapers on microfilm are still available at Huron County Library branches, including more recent issues of local weeklies.

Note: Missing issues reflect gaps in the original microfilm or newsprint collections scanned.
