The Augusta Museum of History-
Founded in 1937, the Augusta Museum of History is Augusta’s oldest historical agency devoted to the preservation and presentation of local and regional history. The not-for-profit agency functions as the steward of the community’s rich, diverse and invaluable material past.
The museum curates the largest and most significant historical collection in the CSRA and functions as a historical research and resource center for professional and amateur historians, media, organizations and individuals, and is home to permanent exhibition Augusta’s Story, a 12,000 year journey through the region’s past.
In 2003, the museum constructed The Knox Foundation Center for the Preservation and Study of the CSRA History and the Educational Resource Center. The 10,000 square-foot addition includes a research library/archives, storage for museum collections, and an artifact conservation/preparation laboratory.
