The good folks at Bowling Green State University (Bowling Green, Ohio) have been busy putting historic newspapers online for all to glance through. Currently, there are 30 papers in the collection. My own favorite is the St. Andrews Bay Pilot which features publications from 1861 and 1878-1889. It appears that, like Bay Pilot, all other newspapers are no longer in circulation and the publishers long been out of business. All newspapers are freely available for viewing and accessible via Google Books platform. To visit the collection, visit BGSU Libraries Website. I will still keep my fingers cross that one day one publications of the Saint Croix Courier will be available online!
