Spring Lake Times (Archives)?

There was a small town paper called the Spring Lake Times back in the 60s & 70s located on Main Street that has long since stopped printing. I'm wondering if anyone has old newspapers, access to the archives or knows how someone from out of town could get access to the archives? My families old home was burned down in the early 70s to make way for a newer one and the picture of the house (burning I believe) as cars pulled over on Main Street to watch appeared on the front page. I'm am trying to get access to that picture and other archives from my Ancestry research. Any help would be appreciated. Would also love to see old pictures of Manchester, Spring Lake and 71st prior to 1950. Also looking for images of Holly Hill, Allen Chapel or the old Murchison Cemetery that was moved in the early 70s. Any images of the town prior to the 70s but preferable prior to the 1950's would be greatly appreciated. Thanks winfredebell@aol.c om  (Nov 6, 2013 | post #1)
