Legacy Projects > Read All About It-Our History Through Newspapers Read All About It-Our History Through Newspapers

This project celebrates the history of Terre Haute and Vigo County from the stories that were printed in the local newspapers. From the first newspaper printed here in 1823 to the present, citizens of our community learned about the big things that were happening around the world, and the small things that were happening in their own neighborhood. Turn hundreds of pages and watch the decades unfold before your eyes…the building of the Erie Canal, the advent of railroads, Civil War news, fashion trends, WWI and WWII, moon landings, and so much more.
