Five More Years of The Farmville Enterprise Digitized

Headline from August 10, 1945

Headline from August 3, 1945

Five more years of The Farmville Enterprise, from 1942-1947 are now up on DigitalNC. These new additions were provided by our partner, Farmville Public Library, and join previously digitized issues dating from 1914-1941. The Farmville Enterprise was established in 1910, and was published on a weekly basis out of Farmville, North Carolina in Pitt County.

Every Friday, The Farmville Enterprise provided Farmville residents with national and local news. The paper’s headlines and front page tended to be dedicated to national news, while the interior reported local stories and contained local advertisements, information on town events, and news from surrounding towns and counties. During the newly digitized span covering the 1940s, many of the paper’s front page headlines featured updates on World War II and its aftermath.
