Oldest Newspaper in Panhandle

CLARENDON, TEXAS - Another rich piece of history is the town's paper. It was the first publication in the panhandle.

The Clarendon News started in 1878 more as propaganda to get people to move to the area. As the town grew, so did the paper's coverage.

The highlights include several natural disastrous, a trip to town by FDR and several local heros in war. Today the paper's is still operating. It's even won some big awards - including recently coming in second place in a national competition.
