Gillespie County Newspaper Collection

The Gillespie County Area Newspaper Collection hosts the The Harper Herald, a weekly newspaper serving the unincorporated city of Harper, Texas, and its wider county. Beginning publication in 1922, the Herald has often featured news about annual barbecues, all grades in the public schools, and civic events. On June 1963, The Harper Herald published its centennial edition, celebrating Harper's 100th year. The Harper Herald was added to The Portal to Texas History by the Harper Library through the support of a Tocker Foundation award.
