Come and take a look at 110 years of history as you browse the website containing digitized copies of the  Wainwright Star Chronicle dating back to 1908.  This preservation of the history of Wainwright, as described in the newspapers will benefit all members of the community, past and present.  We would like to thank our project partners: Wainwright Main Street Project, Battle River Historical Society (Wainwright Museum) and Buffalo National Park Interpretive Centre.  Our resources include Star News and Bison Printing.
