Canton Observer

You can now search the Canton Observer's full text going back to 1974, or browse for particular issues. For instance, search for a loved one's obituary, or for an historical event to get the local take on the news of the day. This valuable resource is brought to you through special agreement with the Canton Observer, and by a generous donation from the Friends of the Library.


Since the issues' texts come from OCR, you may find short words or phrases work best.
