Coon Rapids Enterprise Archives online

This is an image of the pdf file I just saved from on line.
This is page 1 of the first 15 Apr 1882 edition of the
Coon Rapids Enterprise (Iowa) - my hometown paper.

All of the images of all of the issues since (they say) are now accessible at:

  1. This is a great resource. I have been waiting to explore it. The first mention for Irene Smith was when she was sick for a week at the age of 4.

  2. It's awesome that they digitalized the paper. The archives of the local paper that I use when researching my family history is on microfilm and hard to read--and it's really time-consuming to find things.
