New Issues of The Sandhill Citizen now available on DigitalNC


Front Page of “The Sandhill Citizen”, January 7th, 1954

Digital NC now has new issues of The Sandhill Citizen thanks to our partners, the Moore County Library and the Moore County Genealogical Society. Published on Fridays, the newspaper covered news in Southern Pines (1919 – 1925) and Aberdeen (1949 – 1954).

Local stories included stories about small organizations such as events for the March of Dimes, which took on the initiative of helping citizens affected by Polio. In January of 1954, the organization raised $1,000 to help with its initiatives.

Special thanks to the Moore County Public Library and the Genealogical Society for their support in helping to digitize these newspapers.
