Lafayette historical newspapers online

Historic Newspapers Collection icon

Good news! The earliest local newspapers that we have on microfilm are now available online through the Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection. Access them from our Lafayette History & Photos page.

We have digitized several titles dating from 1901 to 1907:

  • Lafayette Leader , 1905-1907
  • Lafayette News, 1901-1906 
  • News Free Press , 1906-1907 
  • The Erie News, 1/11/1907 - 3/8/1907

Online access to these newspapers was made possible by a grant received from the Colorado State Library to digitize a portion of our newspaper collection. Our microfilm was digitized and processed over the summer; the newspapers are now available to the public, and can be searched by keyword. 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.
