Marfa, Presidio County, Texas Historical Newspapers Online
Thanks to Gary Oliver, Marfa Library Board President, for coming up with the idea of digitizing the Marfa Public Library’s microfilmed copies of Marfa newspapers from 1921-2004. The City of Marfa funded the project. Plans are underway to continue digitizing subsequent issues.
The papers are made accessible on the internet thanks to hosting by Sul Ross State University’s Bryan Wildenthal Memorial Library.
