If you have hours and hours to kill, then check out Chronicling America, a site dedicated to old newspapers and the stories they print.
At the moment, you can view papers from 1880 to 1922 (from California, DC, Florida, Hawaii, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, Texas, Utah, and Virginia).
Search, print, save, zoom in and out, etc.
Here’s a link to a little story out of Kitty Hawk, NC. Zoom in to the story in the upper left corner (you can draw a box to zoom in on, or just zoom in on the whole page then move it around).
