Historical records to be preserved

LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) - Webb County Commissioners approve close to $24,000 to preserve historical plat records.

The Webb County Clerk’s Office is the one that keeps all the records that date back to more than a hundred years ago and some documents are in need of care.

The 45 plat records that will be preserved date back to the 1900s and are currently in a cabinet and inside plastic to prevent them from deteriorating.

One of the neatest items found in the county clerk's office were old newspapers from the 1800's and 1900's.

The public is invited to see all the documents firsthand.
