North Carolina Historic Newspapers is well underway contributing newspapers to the Library of Congress’ Chronicling America newspaper website during its second phase of digitization. There are now 127,225 historic North Carolina newspaper pages available on the site.

The above masthead is from the Banner-Enteprise, a late 19th-century African-American publication out of Raleigh, then Wilmington. It describes itself as the “Organ of the North Carolina Industrial Association.”

Chronicling America recently celebrated its 10,000,000 page milestone. Ever growing, it contains freely available and keyword searchable historic newspapers from 39 states and one territory.
