Digital Archive Access

Search the Community History Archive, where you can locate thousands of digitized pages of the New Hampshire Sentinel (1799-1889) and the Keene Evening Sentinel (1890-1945). The Historical Society partnered with the Keene Public Library, New Hampshire State Library, and the Sentinel itself to digitize Keene’s historic newspaper and to make it available for public use.
