The Alpine Avalanche has served Alpine and the entire Big Bend region since 1891. It is one of the oldest newspapers in Texas. Founded in 1891 by Jack Lee, the newspaper has enjoyed a long history of being the predominant news source for Brewster County and the Big Bend region. The Alpine Avalanche Collection has been added to The Portal to Texas History through the support of a Rescuing Texas History grant.
