• Newspapers and Scrapbooks

  • Old newspapers provide an excellent glimpse into the past and they are just fun to look at. In addition to the articles on people, events, notices, sports, etc. – they are filled with advertisements from businesses which have long since disappeared.

    The museum has an abundant collection of newspaper clipping scrapbooks compiled by people with Calhoun County ties. Many of these along with loose clippings (categorized by town) date back into the 1930’s and earlier. 

    Our complete collection of newspapers are:

    The Lohrville Enterprise 1894-1910 & 1941-1971
