Counter-culture beginnings hatch a decade of community news and issues
About the Harrisburg Independent Press
In its pages were reported and debated many nascent topics which grew into importance today: the environment and womens issues, to name a few.
This website archives every issue and article published by HIP. It also features analysis, remebrances and commentary by staffers and readers, and showcases some of the articles we think stand the test of time.
We hope this web page informs today’s readers not only about this remarkable community newspaper, but the remarkable times in which it existed.
