OCPL Digital Newspaper Archives: The Intelligencer and the Wheeling News-Register 

The Ohio County Public Library has digitized the microfilmed versions of our Wheeling News-Register and The Intelligencer newspapers!

We now have the entire run of the Intelligencer newspapers from 1852-present online. We are currently digitizing the News-Register and the years 1863-1989 and 2010-2024 are now online with many of the Sunday editions available to the present. More dates will be added to our collection as we continue to process our microfilm. 

Digital newspapers from Wheeling preceding 1922 are also available through the Library of Congress's Chronicling America website (see below).

Recently, we have upgraded our version of the Community History Archive. The site will look different, but function the same. The digital archive is now mobile-friendly and easier to use. The interface has been upgraded, and the search tool is now more powerful, but it's still the same great content. Over 2.5 million images dating back to 1852 are ready to view here.
