Volunteers at the South Peace archives hit an important milestone this month, noting they've completed scanning all of the Peace River Block News.

The Peace River Block News was the first newspaper published in the BC Peace area - and was established in Rolla by C.S. Kitchen.

Operations were moved to Dawson Creek in 1932.
