Historical Timeline

Many thanks to Melanie King and The Shamrock Public Library for efforts that lead to receiving the grant from The Tocker Foundation that digitized old issues of The Wheeler County Texan and The Shamrock Texan newspapers. Having free, 24-hour online access to local newspapers from 1923 through 1966, made the collection of this information possible. We also want to thank The Portal to Texas History, that provides access to this digital information and the University of North Texas Libraries who hosts this invaluable resource. Lastly, many thanks to Jeff and Angela Blackmon and the County Star-News for providing free public access to issues of the County Star-News from January 2010 to the present time.
