Over the last three years since the fire that destroyed The Shepherd Argus offices, the Shepherd Area Historical Society has been collecting remaining copies of Argus from area residents, organizing them, and then working with CMU’s Clarke Library to digitally preserved them. There are already several issues of The Shepherd Argus which can viewed on the Internet.

On October 10, the Shepherd Bar and Restaurant will donate a percentage of its profits from meals served between 6 a.m. and 11 p.m. to the Shepherd Area Historical Society’s Shepherd Argus preservation project. The historical society currently needs to raise $15,000 for the project.
