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 museum is home to the award-winning permanent exhibition, Augusta's Story, a 12,000-year journey through the region's rich and diverse past, and The Transportation Corridor, which features a fully restored 1914 locomotive. The museum also presents exhibitions on topics relating to the people and events of the Central Savannah River Region. From early Native Americans to The Godfather of Soul, James Brown, Augusta's history is brimming with the people and the forces that make Augusta a historical journey worth taking.
