Historical Records & Photos of Atikokan, Ontario

This Section Revised October 9, 2023.

Historical Records and Photo­graphs :

Atikokan in the News, 1890-1983. This is an on-going project – a collection of items found in historic newspapers on-line, which mention Atikokan, Sapawe and surrounding areas. The "good old days" were full of villains, heroes, disasters, crime, mayhem, pandemics – very similar to life today. The oldest item so far is 1890. To make it easier for slow connections, items are presented in roughly 20-year batches, using the links below.
