Until now, finding articles and other historical information about Habersham County in previous editions of local newspapers has been challenging. Bound newspapers and microfilm available in libraries are not indexed. Unless you know exactly when an event took place, it can take many hours to locate an article - if you find it at all. Limited hours of operation also add to the difficulty of finding the information.
Over the past two years, Habersham Education & Research has been working hard to digitize historic newspapers published in
Habersham County. These include:
The Clarkesville Advertiser (1882-1918)
The Northeast Georgian (1857, 1925-1957)
The Tri-County Advertiser (1919-1957)
The Demorest Times (1891-1896)
Now, finding information about Habersham's history is a single click away! Enter your search criteria and your results quickly appear. It's that easy.
