The Bullitt Pioneer Newspaper

Edith Blissett, well-known Bullitt County researcher, has graciously donated her collection of transcriptions of The Bullitt Pioneer newspaper for the years from 1901 through 1924 to the museum and to the Ridgway Library.

These are in pdf format and require a pdf reader program such as Adobe Reader to view. These files are available online at the Ridgway Library site. Use this link to go to the library menu page for these files.

Also included on this page is a link to Edith's book, World War in the Pioneer News, and her transcriptions of Bullitt County death certificates through 1955.
