The Bell County Democrat represents late-19th and early-20th-century life in central Texas. Bell County was founded in 1850, containing the center of population for the state of Texas in the town of Holland. "Center of population" refers to the geographical point that represents the center point of a given region's population.

Digital access to the Bell County Democrat was generously supported by the Texas State Library and Archives Commission by a TexTreasures grant.
