Polk County Enterprise Archives Available Online

Older editions of local newspaper available through The Portal to Texas History

Archives of the Polk County Enterprise are now available online through The Portal to Texas History, created and maintained by the University of North Texas Libraries' Digital Projects Unit.  The group was able to digitize microfilm provided by Livingston Municipal Library, as well as scan newspapers made available from the Polk County Enterprise staff.  Users can now access issues of the Polk County Enterprise as recent as 2014, and as early as 1894 (when the local paper was known as East Texas Pinery).  A large number of Corrigan Press editions (1934-1946) are also available.  Digital versions of these newspapers will be useful to those needing to find obituaries or conducting other types of research about Polk County.

The newspapers can be accessed at http://texashistory.unt.edu/ and searching for Polk County Enterprise.
