Suffolk Historic Newspapers

The Suffolk County Cooperative Library System, fifty-six public libraries in the county, historical societies and the business community are working together to offer a fully indexed and searchable database of local newspapers, Suffolk Historic Newspapers. The collection includes, The Long Islander from Huntington (1839-1925), The Corrector from Sag Harbor (1858-1871), The Long Island Traveler, from Cutchogue and Southold (1883-1893), The Port Jefferson Echo (1892-1931), Sag Harbor Express (1885-1898), The South Side Signal from Babylon (1869-1879), and Suffolk County News from Sayville (1888-1923).

The articles can be viewed separately, or as they originally appeared in the paper. You may print, save and email a copy. Take the time to check out this wonderful resource of Long Island history.
