The paper was started by printer Roy Ruffin as the Freeport Facts months after the 1912 founding of Freeport, Texas by the Freeport Sulphur Company. One year later, the paper was acquired by C.P. Kendall, Sr. who also owned newspapers in Port Aransas, and the Angleton Times in Angleton.
Separate area newspapers, the Brazoria County Review, Velasco World, and West Columbia Light were acquired by businessman W.D. Johnston. In 1949, he then merged the papers into The Daily Review.
In 1951, Southern Newspapers Inc. bought an interest in The Daily Review. The next year, it purchased the Freeport Facts. Merging the acquisitions into The Daily Facts-Review, Southern Newspapers later changed the name to Brazosport Facts. It eventually became the largest daily newspaper for the entire area.
In 1976, the Facts moved its headquarters from Freeport to neighboring Clute, Texas where it remains today. It absorbed the competitor Angleton Times in 2004 and opened a second office in its building.
