Kutztown Journal 1870 to 1874: The Digital Kutztown Journal

Local newspaper, published by Isaac F. Christ, written in Pennsylvania German, and typeset using the German Fraktur script.

Welcome to the Kutztown Journal Project

The Kutztown Area Historical Society and the Rohrbach Library of Kutztown University have received a grant from the Commonwealth Libraries of Pennsylvania (the State Library), which was funded under the Library Services and Technology Act through the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

This grant allowed us to digitize the deteriorating copies of the Kutztown Journal from 1870 to 1874, and make it globally available through the Internet.

Because this project was funded  with a grant, it is very important that you complete the voluntary, anonymous survey below so we can prove these types of projects are important, used, and need to funded in the future. Thank you!
