Welcome to the Bellville Historical Society

A Proud History – a Bright Future.

The Bellville Historical Society consists of individuals whose main focus is the restoration & preservation of the history and the historic sites & buildings in and around Bellville. We hope you enjoy visiting our website, and our little slice of Texas heaven.

We present to our members and the citizens of Bellville programs and events that portray the history of Bellville, Austin County, and Texas. We welcome everyone to join us to remember the lessons of history, and we especially welcome those of you who would like to join us in our endeavors.

We meet monthly except during summer and are currently in a transition phase of our meeting location.
See our Programs/Events page for our next program meeting.

Remember: History is not there for you to like or dislike. It is there for you to learn from. And if it offends you, even better, because you are less likely to repeat it. It’s not yours to erase or destroy.

Bellville Historical Society is a non-profit 501(C)(3) organization.
