Granite City Press-Record Archives

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Granite City Press-Record was published from April 22, 1903, when it was called the Granite City Press, until December 26, 2012, as the Press-Record. The Granite City Press-Record covered the news and human-interest stories about Granite City, Pontoon Beach, Mitchell, Madison, and Venice, Illinois.

The Granite City Press-Record archives were digitally transferred from the Library’s microfilm collection in a massive undertaking requiring many hours of work by SMRLD staff and others. It is our pleasure to make these archives available for public use, free-of-charge.  Like our Facebook page to be the first to find out when new decades are added to the archive.
