Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips?
We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive.
Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment.
If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately!
donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
Baylor County Banner
What's Inside this Collection.
Baylor County, in North Central Texas, was formally organized in 1879 with Seymour as its county seat. The Baylor County Banner printed its first edition in 1895, following the previously established newspapers, the Monitor and the News. The Banner continues to be published weekly today, providing the residents of Seymour, Texas with local, state, and national news. The Baylor County Banner has been digitized through the support of a Tocker Foundation grant, in collaboration with the Baylor County Free Library.
