Treasures from the Quinlan Museum

Donated to the Quinlan Community Museum by M. K. Epperson, typed by Donna Smith.

Recreating Quinlan school and community history can be had by reading old newspapers. For over 50 years, Hobart Lytal (postmaster of Quinlan for about 40 years) submitted to the Greenville Banner newspaper an article about Quinlan news. To read this information you have to make a trip to Greenville and read their daily paper on microfilm.

In 2015 M.K. Epperson donated approximately six newspapers that his father had saved of old Quinlan newspapers. The papers are extremely fragile and are missing pieces of paper where the original paper was folded.

Texas A&M University at Commerce will be photocopying these old papers and store them in a climate control room. Before we gave them the papers, I wanted to share what we could, with The Quinlan-Tawakoni News readers.

We will have a copy of the disc the students make for the Northeast Texas Archives.
