Our Elders Remember

Since 2011, the Cultural Committee has conducted interviews and filmed many citizens to record what they had to say about their ancestors, their childhood, their youth and their life  in Austin. These documents, essentially videos and pictures, are invaluable in the preservation of the history of our municipality. 

The resulting two-hour film, « Growing Up in Austin, 1920-1960 » is bilingual. It is comprised of 5 chapters and a conclusion.

           Chapter 1: The Municipality of Austin. Getting Around.

            Chapter 2: The Homestead

            Chapter 3: Working on the Farm. Working Outdoors.

            Chapter 4: School

            Chapter 5: Seasonal Recreation
