The Elgin Courier serves Elgin, Texas, and wider Bastrop County. Founded by Miles Hill, the paper has been published weekly since 1890. Though it was not the first paper ever published in Elgin, it has served as the newspaper of record for not just Elgin, but for the surrounding communities of McDade, Coupland, and other areas of Bastrop County. Addition of the Elgin Courier to The Portal to Texas History was made possible through the support of a Tocker Foundation grant awarded to the Elgin Public Library.
