History

Founded in 1896, the paper consolidated with at least two additional papers in the early 1900s. One of the additional papers was named the Grand Saline Salt Shaker and was most likely the source of the graphic of a salt shaker which appears on the current masthead (the town's name comes from a large salt deposit located southeast of the city, mined by Morton Salt).

Ownership

In November 2012 the Sun was purchased by Lake Country Media, LLC, a family owned media company located in Grand Saline and is now locally owned and operated by Dan and Ann Moore.[2]
