About this collection

The Valley News Collection includes the Orwell Weekly Welcome, 1878-1880.

 

This collection consists of the beginning phase of our Valley News Collection digitization project. The local newspaper which now serves the Grand Valley and Pymatuning Valley areas was printed by the Lampson Family beginning in 1876 in Jefferson, OH. It has been published under many names such as the Orwell Weekly Welcome, Orwell Local, Orwell Newsletter, The Newsletter, Valley News, The Valley News, and The News. The family-owned business is currently under fifth generation proprietorship.

 

The Grand Valley Public Library in Orwell, OH holds physical copies of the newspaper dating from 1896-current day, and the Ashtabula County District Library in Ashtabula, Ohio, holds microfilmed copies of the Valley News dating from 1878-2004. We hope to, in the near future, digitize these through cooperation with the Ohio History Connection.
