WYOMING NEWSPAPERS AND UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD HISTORY

 If you have any interest in history at all, you will find this database fascinating. For those primarily interested in the history of the Union Pacific Railroad, this database makes it possible to read UPRR  history as viewed by the editors of the local newspapers. The database is very “user friendly”. I use it often for the pure delight in reading about life in the “wild west”.                    

                  This is the link to the Wyoming newspaper database.                                                                                                                                            Wyoming Newspapers. Wyoming State Library. http://newspapers.wyo.gov
