This is an online exhibit from the Austin History Center and the Austin Public Library. It showcases many of "memorable Austin firsts." Austin's history has been filled with events great and small, significant and trivial, historic and amusing. All have contributed to building the city that is first in our hearts. Finding these milestones is one of the pleasures of conducting research in the Austin History Center. The staff, volunteers, and customers of the Austin History Center share just a few of the memorable firsts that we have discovered in our files.
