About the Farm, Field and Fireside Collection
Together with the introduction of rural mail delivery, the telephone, and the automobile,
farm newspapers played a key role in the modernization of rural America. The Farm, Field and Fireside collection contains
historically significant U.S. farm weeklies published in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Using the menu to the left, you can browse the newspapers by date or search by keyword across articles, advertisements and photo captions. You can print, download, or e-mail individual articles. And it's free! More info.
