The Austin History Center's mission is to procure, preserve, present and provide the historical records that make up Austin's unique story. As the local history division of the Austin Public Library, we provide the public with information about the history, current events, and activities of Austin and Travis County. We collect and preserve information about local governments, businesses, residents, institutions, and neighborhoods so that generations to come will have access to our history.
