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.

The Wylie-Sachse Newspaper Collection

What's Inside this Collection.

The Wylie-Sachse Newspaper Collection

Spanning Collin and Dallas Counties and three newspaper titles, the Wylie-Sachse Newspaper Collection represents the history of these neighboring communities. The Wylie News, The Sachse Sentinel, and The Sachse News have been included on The Portal to Texas History through the collaborative support of a TexTreasures grant from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission awarded to Smith Public Library, as well as a grant from the Collin County Historical Commission awarded to the Collin County Genealogical Society, toward the joint goal of preserving the cultural identities of Wylie and Sachse.
