Chronicles of Smith County, Texas has been published by the Smith County Historical Society since 1962. The articles are always informative about the county’s history and often include photographs, maps and tables.

All issues have been published in an 8.5 inch X 11 inch, soft cover format. With the large number of topics already covered since its beginning, past issues of Chronicles are important resources for any person researching our history!

Indexes, each covering a 10-year span of Chronicles, are also available and provide the invaluable keys to this saved history.

We have had a generous donation for the purpose of getting this issue reprinted and available to the public again.  There are a limited number of copies available at this time.  Unfortunately a page-sheet was not included when printed.  This 11″X17″ is being tucked into the new printing as a separate sheet and therefore we are discounting this item, since it will not be as an expected new printing should be.
