A new Panola County Veterans Museum, organized by William and Ashley Morris and the Panola County Historical and Genealogical Society, opened Monday next door to the Old Jail Museum and Library in downtown Carthage.


Carthage native Meredith Shamburger has worked for the Panola Watchman since 2018. Before that, she worked at sister papers in Longview and Marshall; the Dallas Morning News; and The Daily Voice, a hyperlocal news company in Westchester County, New York.
