Twenty years of The Chowan Herald are now available on DigitalNC

Twenty years worth of The Chowan Herald has recently been transferred to a digital format from a microfilm one, and these issues are now available on DigitalNC. These new additions cover Edenton’s news from 1934 until 1956 and cover all manner of Chowan County news.  This paper is made available thanks to our new partner Shepard-Pruden Memorial Library.

Among other things, the paper frequently shares images of local homes and businesses, though the digitized microfilm is sometimes difficult to make out:

The paper also often includes a comic strip, “Facts You Never Knew!!!”:
