Iowa Online Historical Newspapers Summary

Iowa is one of the states that does not have a single central online state repository for searching historical newspapers, however there are numerous library and county-wide online collections that are quite good (and abundant). Several states use the Library of Congress Chronicling America site as their main central online site for searching old newspapers and currently Iowa has many newspapers available on that site. There are hundreds of free online newspapers available on other sites and there are collections available on subscription sites. Below is a list of where the titles are stored and the link so that you can access them. 

There are almost 4,000 newspapers that have been published in the Hawkeye State – certainly not all of them are searchable online. But there are several that are indeed available. So go for it – find your Iowa ancestors and all the interesting articles that capture the stories of their lives. 

Please note that I have not always entered the dates that are included in the collections, as I suspect they will change as more items are digitized. Also I suspect that some of these links may change over time – so if there is a dead link – please use your favorite search engine to find their new location.

  1. Excellent list, as usual! It should be noted that the Daily Iowan, listed for Iowa City, was published by the University of Iowa.

  2. You finally published about a site where I have ancestors. And I found lots of stuff about them. Thanks so much for the list.

    1. Thanks Ellen. I thought that I had that county in the list but apparently not. I will add it. Thanks! How new is the site for that county – do you know?

    1. Every entity that has old paper newspapers or microfilmed images of old newspaper pages (usually a library, but could be a historical society, etc.) makes their own decision about if they want to pay some company to turn those items into digital images to be posted somewhere on the internet.
      So if you know of some old newspapers you wanted to see posted online, you could call a local or county library near where the old papers were distributed, and ask them if they have original paper newspapers or microfilm rolls of them. If they say yes, ask them if those images are online. If no, ask them if they plan to digitize them and post them online. If yes, what website will they be on?

  3. The Kirchner-French Memorial Library & Spencer Public Library Archives are in Clay County, not Clayton County, please fix 🙂
    This is an great list, thank you!!

  4. Humboldt Public Library has digitized Humboldt, Iowa newspapers. Visit the library website to access them (username and password).

  5. To whom it may concern:
    The Shenandoah Public Library in Page County Iowa has digital newspapers, but they are NOT available for access outside the library, per directive of the copyright holders (in spit of our efforts to secure a broader agreement). Please remove the link from this list. Thank you.
    Sincerely,

  6. Under Other Free Sites, the Lansing, Iowa newspaper, Allamakee Journal mistakingly goes to the Jefferson Public Library site (i.e. Greene County, Iowa). Is the Allamakee Journal available online?

    1. Sorry Karon it has taken me so long to respond. I can’t seem to find it anywhere. Tried the Postville Library in Allamakee County but no luck with that online collection.

  7. My family owned the Ute Independent in Ute, Monona County, IA in the early 1900’s. It was started in 1890 and my 2nd Great Uncle helped with the printing of the 1st copy.
    It is stored at the Onawa Public Library, as well as the ones mentioned in your list. I have actually flown from AZ to Iowa, just to research the paper.
    Is there any possibility of getting it digitized?
    Thanks for your time.

  8. A couple of oops! Wapello is not in Wapello County. It is actually in Louisa county. Under Wapello County, there is a listing for the Ottumwa Courier. The Courier is NOT free, it requires a paid subscription to view.

    1. I’ll fix the wrong county in the next update. I’m pretty sure that the Ottumwa site used to be free as many but certainly not all of the Newspaper Archive sites are. I always check that. That’ll be fixed too. Thanks for the heads up.
