Our Austin Story was selected by the Texas Historical Commission for their annual Award of Excellence in Preserving History! The award is designed to recognize achievements in preservation planning, historic site identification, or research that leads to a greater understanding of state or local history. We are honored to have Our Austin Story, a project focused on the history of Austin’s four historic squares and Congress Avenue, be recognized for its focus on documenting the stories of the people and places who shaped these important civic spaces and offering a framework for celebrating, expressing and growing with respect for Austin’s diverse heritage. 


Our Austin Story was commissioned by the Downtown Austin Alliance, in partnership with the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Department (PARD). It was developed with contributions from a broad diversity of Austin citizens and stakeholders, many of whom shared their stories and perspectives on the past, present and prospective future of these public spaces.
