This week in Canton History...

Canton Herald-Aug. 3, 1961:

The Van Zandt County Genealogy and Local History Library try to preserve all the information we possibly can by archiving the Newspapers.

Sometimes, however, things get lost and that is what has happened to the Aug. 3 and Aug. 10 papers for 1961.

When the papers were sent to be micro filmed many years ago, somehow, these two editions were not captured.

I hope you will enjoy this edition and next week’s edition as they will be from the 1927 and 1928 era…My how things have changed as to what is published in the papers from then till now.

Jan. 7, 1927-The Sunshine Motor Lines, Riter Bros., Proprietors, of this city, will put in a bid to carry mail over the new star route line to be operated out of Wills Point to Canton, Ben Wheeler, and Tyler, beginning February 1, next year.
