The Bastrop Advertiser is a weekly newspaper covering Bastrop, Texas, and wider Bastrop County. Founded in 1853,[1] it is one of the oldest continually operating weeklies in the state of Texas; and along with papers like the Elgin Courier, is considered the newspaper of record for some of the small rural towns in the Greater Austin region.[2]
