Ballinger Area Newspaper Collection

The Ballinger Daily Ledger, The Banner-Ledger, and The Ballinger Ledger represent Runnels County and the county seat of Ballinger. These newspapers document a county originally settled in 1886 by railroad development, that eventually became a farming and ranching hub by the early 20th-century. The Ballinger Ledger began publication in 1886 and changed its name in 1911 to the Daily Ledger when it merged with another title, The Banner Leader. After the merger, The Daily Ledger also published a weekly edition, The Banner Ledger.
