LOCKPORT—Thanks to the generosity of a local charitable trust, Niagara County historians have digitally preserved 28,000 newspaper pages, many the only known surviving copies, County Clerk Joseph A. Jastrzemski announced.

The $51,000 project was funded by the Grigg-Lewis Foundation, the Lockport-based philanthropic organization that has funded arts and culture, community, educational, human service, and historical projects in Eastern Niagara County.
