Austerlitz Historical Society is an educational non-profit community organization founded in 1988. Their mission is: to preserve, protect and interpret the history of Austerlitz.  Their efforts are devoted to safeguarding the heritage, fostering civic pride, and promoting the Town’s historic resources.

Austerlitz Historical Society offers a full calendar of events and programs year-round, a quarterly newsletter, and a growing museum site, Old Austerlitz, where artifacts, photos and memorabilia relating to the Town are being collected and preserved, along with a collection of 18th and 19th century buildings. These buildings will augment the original one-room schoolhouse and 1850s church.
