Jackson’s Historical Newspaper Digital Collection

The Jackson District Library started a project in 2016 to complete its digital archive of the Jackson Citizen Patriot. The newspaper, which was first published under the name the Jackson Citizen in 1849, remains one of Jackson County’s largest news providers. Though the library provides full access to Citizen Patriot materials via microfilm, contributions from library supporters have allowed JDL to expand its digital collection to include the years 1849 through 1881 and 2000 to present day.
