    • Hi Sharon, The museum is re-opening from a winter break on April 22nd. We’ll be open on Sundays from 1-4 PM. I am sorry to learn of your grandmother. I am not sure if you already spoke with a volunteer at the museum regarding our Columbia News archives. The telephone number is (717) 684-2894. Perhaps if you provide the month and year and other pertinent information someone can help you find the newspaper article that you hope to find. Good luck, Janette

    Are there any plans to have the Columbia News issues loaded into a searchable archive on the internet, like the Columbia Spy? This would be an invaluable resource for those interested in Columbia history.

    • We have the Columbia News dated 1895 – 1990 on microfilm. We open on Saturday, April 22 and Sunday, April 23 from 1 – 4 PM. Then every weekend all year long until January 2018.
      Remember that the Columbia News was a (6) day paper, so please narrow the dates due to search time. Thanks!
