Membership Levels & Benefits

What We Do

The Austin History Center Association supports the Austin History Center in its work to enrich the collective memory of Austin and Travis County. We do this by promoting awareness and use of the Austin History Center through receptions, programs, the annual Angelina Eberly Luncheon, newsletters, and the publications of Waterloo Press. When possible, our association raises funds for the Austin History Center to pay for special acquisitions and outreach projects. You can be part of the effort to save Austin’s history.
