Forest City Courier now Available Online


Over 400 issues of the Forest City Courier are now available online through DigitalNC.

Quoting the U.S. Department of Agriculture Survey reporting that Forest City is “One of the Ten Best Planned and Most Beautiful Cities in the U.S.A.” on its byline, the Courier covers Forest City and surrounding towns in Rutherford County. The issues available in DigitalNC cover the time period of 1919 through 1931. Frequent topics include local issues such as the need for road improvements and the promotion of tourism in North Carolina. During these years, the Courier ran a regular column entitled “Important News the World Over: Important Happening of this and Other Nations for Seven Days Given.”

This title is part of the Newspaper Digitization project and was selected for digitization by Rutherford County Library.
