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! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Sweetwater Reporter

What's Inside this Collection.

Sweetwater Reporter

The Sweetwater Reporter newspaper collection has been added to The Portal to Texas History by the Sweetwater/Nolan County City-County Library. Since its beginnings in 1879 with the establishment of a post office, Sweetwater has served as a hub of transportation, ranching, and industry, and its newspaper has documented the ups and downs of this west Texas community. Through the support of a Tocker Foundation grant, these years of the Sweetwater Reporter are digitally available for research.
