Exhibit 6: Newspapers, Journals & Articles

The Worthen collection includes approximately 200 issues of more than 56 local and regional newspapers reporting on Lexington’s – and, in many cases, America’s – history from the late 1700s through 1975. Headlines cover the news of the day, whether commemorating the Battles of Lexington and Concord, presenting the pros and cons of building a new high school for Lexington, debating national banking regulations, or announcing the deaths of Presidents Lincoln, Grant and Kennedy.
