Colorado Digital Newspaper Project

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Colorado's historic newspapers published between 1859 and 1922, as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

History Colorado (HC) proposes to digitize 100,000 pages of its state’s historic newspapers, 1859-1922, as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program. From the first newspaper printed in 1859, HC’s newspaper collection tells the story of Colorado: communities that evolved from rough mining camps to thriving towns, towns that died out and became ghost towns, conflicts with Native American peoples, the spread of agriculture and ranching, labor unrest and mining, suffrage, exploration and protection of the region’s natural beauty, the discovery of oil, the development of diverse cultures, and more. For this project, HC will collaborate with the Colorado State Library (CSL), a long time partner in providing access to Colorado’s newspapers through the Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection (CHNC) website.
