Mills County Newspaper Collection

The Mills County Newspaper Collection hosts The Mountain Eagle, The Goldthwaite Eagle, and the Mullin Enterprise. Mills County was organized in 1887 from Brown, Comanche, Hamilton, Lampasas counties and named for early pioneer John T. Mills. The earliest newspaper in this collection, volume 2, issue 17, of The Mountain Eagle from March 7, 1896, documents local, state, national, and international news. Later years and newspaper titles continue this pattern, characterizing the cosmopolitan interests of county residents. This collection has been added to The Portal to Texas History by the Jennie Trent Dew Public Library through the support of a Tocker Foundation award.
