What's Inside this Collection.
Henderson is a city in Rusk County, Texas, and is home to the Heritage Syrup Festival. Henderson was founded on January 16, 1843, nearly three years before Texas became a state of the U.S. Union. From 1881 to 1906, the Henderson Times was owned and edited by Robert T. Milner, a president of Texas A&M University and a notable Texas legislator. Digital access to the Henderson Times was generously supported by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission under a TexTreasures grant.
