Chronicling America is a joint project of the Library of Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities.  Currently, you can search and view pages from newspapers of the following states: California, District of Columbia, Florida, Hawaii, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, Texas, Utah, and Virginia.  The ultimate goal of this project is to have every state and U.S. territory represented in this digital archive.  Coverage is 1890 to 1922 but varies by title.
