The Mineola Newspaper Collection

History

When two railroad lines, the Texas and Pacific and the International Great-Northern, competed to reach Mineola in 1873, the International Great-Northern won by reaching the town fifteen minutes before its competitor. Supported by the railroads, Mineola was a timber hub, which allowed the town to prosper into the 1930s.
