On a Saturday, May 19, 1877, The Williamson County Sun printed its first issue, a simple four-page broadsheet newspaper.

The lates issue is the most recent of a series that has now continued, without interruption, for 144 years. At first, the Sun rented space on the third floor of the first courthouse built on the Square. Two more courthouses have been built since then.

In 1881, the Sun moved into the stone building at 711 Main Street on the east side of the Square. In 1936 the newspaper bought and moved into the 2-story building next door where the paper is still printed today.

Throughout its history, the Sun has always been locally owned and now has over 70 years of family ownership. The Sun is not only the oldest newspaper in the county, it is the oldest business in the county, having operated continuously in its original form for 144 years.

Originally, and today, the Sun is the newspaper of the county seat and focuses on news of Georgetown, the central county area and county government.

In 1974, the Sun added a weekend paper, The Sunday Sun.
