If you love researching local history or old newspapers, you’ll want to check out the Prince William County Historic Newspapers. Our Special Collections Research Center recently finished processing this new collection given to the University Libraries by the Prince William County Library. The papers in the collection span the years 1851 through 1992 and contain many interesting articles (such as the one pictured on the left) and fun advertisements. Read SCRC’s story and visit the newly created finding aid to learn more.
