Have you had a chance to check out the online archive of early editions of Lafayette newspapers? The earliest local newspapers that we have on microfilm are available online through the Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection, with more dates added regularly. Access them from our Lafayette History & Photos page.
We have digitized several titles dating from 1901 to 1936
- Lafayette Leader, 1905-January 1936
- Lafayette News, 1901-1906
- News Free Press, 1906-1907
- The Erie News, January 11, 1907 - March 8, 1907
Online access to these newspapers was made possible by a grant received from the Colorado State Library. Digitized microfilm was added to the searchable online public archive. The state library takes care of all on-going support needed to maintain, develop, and provide access to the content in the Colorado Historical Newspapers Collection.
