    Jacavone column: Digitization of Herald from 1934 to 2019 complete, online

    By Jared Jacavone Columnist,


    The Shepard-Pruden Memorial Library is pleased to announce that the digitization of the Chowan Herald from 1934 to 2019 is now complete!

    Thanks to a generous grant from the Edenton Woman’s Club, you can now find past articles in the Chowan Herald online for free from the comfort of your home.

    Thanks to the efforts of the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill’s North Carolina Digital Heritage Center, these historic newspapers are available through and are fully text-searchable. Following copyright rules from the publisher, another year of the Chowan Herald will be added in January 2025.

    This development is a game-changer for local historians, researchers and genealogists, as Edenton and Chowan County’s newspaper history is now freely accessible and searchable with only the click of a mouse! Since our local history is now available to researchers all over the world, this also creates an opportunity for people around the globe to connect with their ancestors.

    Again, we extend special thanks to the Edenton Woman’s Club for providing multiple grants over the past decade to bring this important resource to the public. We would also would like to thank Apex Clean Energy and their Timbermill Wind grant for helping make this possible. We would also like to thank the Chowan Herald, its parent company, Adams Publishing Group, and Editor Julian Eure for working with us on this digitization project.

    Finally, I would like to thank East Carolina State University, UNC Chapel Hill’s North Carolina Digital Heritage Center, and Lisa Gregory for digitally preserving and sharing Edenton and Chowan County’s history.

    Stay tuned, as this is only the start of our digitization efforts! In the meantime, check out some of our latest releases listed below. Have a great week, and we hope to see you at the library!
