About NCO

Northfield Citizens Online (formerly the Northfield Free-Net) was born out of a living room salon in December of 1991. The discussion questions for the evening: What's the likely impact of the Internet on local community? How can it be used to strengthen a geographic community rather than undermining it like other electronic media tend to do?

We've received funding from the City of Northfield between 1995 and 2002. From 1995-97, we received in-kind support (server space, connection to the Internet) from Keith Lauver at Gearworks (previously known as MicroAssist). From 1998-2004, we received similar services from Bob Courchaine and Steve Hatle at Northfield Internetworking and Rob Brown at badbrain computers.

We are very grateful to all for their generous support.

Our mission is to create an electronic commons that strengthens the fabric of community in the greater Northfield area. We facilitate online access to existing community resources, provide services for citizens and non-profit organizations to electronically publish and communicate with one another, and host online discussions, including timely conversations on civic issues with the community's leaders.


Coming soon

We'll soon be launching a new version of Northfield.org, from the folks at Northfield Citizens Online.
