Singletary Memorial Library
About this Partner
Singletary Memorial Library features Texas' oldest, continuously published weekly The Cherokeean Herald. The library, located in Rusk, received a Tocker Foundation grant to digitize the newspaper. Rusk was established by an act of the Texas legislature on April 11, 1846, which defined the boundaries of Cherokee County and called for the county seat to be named for Gen. Thomas Jefferson Rusk, one of the signers of the Texas Declaration of Independence.
