Massachusetts Newspapers Online

This page lists Massachusetts current and historical newspapers, news publications, news websites, and local interest magazines and indexes thereto that are freely available online. The focus is more on historical newspapers, but includes some that are current. If you are looking for a current newspaper that does not appear here, do an internet search under the name of the newspaper or the town name and word newspaper to find it, or visit the "Multi-Town Links" in the Massachusetts City & Town Newspapers section below. Many of these digitization projects are still in process so dates may be different than posted.
