Austinville Historical Society


The Austinville Historical Society was formed in the fall 0f 1998 when Lincoln Savings Bank donated the bank building in Austinville to the town. A group of residents thought the bank would be a good place to keep Austinville memorabilia as well as keep the memories and rich stories of past residents

The Historical Society Board meets bi-monthly at the bank building. A number of interesting items are on display as well as documents, pictures and stories. A number of items from the old Austinville School are housed in the Austinville Historical Society building.

The Historical Society sponsors several community events throughout the year, including a Pancake Breakfast in April and November, a Beef Burger Lunch in July, and a town picnic in September.

The Historical Society Building is open every Tuesday morning at 9 am for coffee and tours or anytime by request.
