Hershey Community Archives also recently collaborated with Milton Hershey School to offer online access to historical newspapers. The Hershey Press (published 1909-1926) and Hershey News (published 1953-1964) are both accessible online via AccessPA’s Digital Repository. “Milton Hershey School’s membership in AccessPA provided the Archives with an opportunity to add these newspapers to a state-wide historical newspaper database,” said Hamilton. “Users can search by keyword for articles related to the community or even their own family.” To access the newspapers, go to www.hersheyarchives.organd use the Collections & Research tab.
