Welcome to Austin County, the Colonial Capital of Texas. With its rural and agricultural background it presents a series of inspiring views to the passer-through. Its rolling hills and almost idyllic farm settings can be breathtaking in their beauty.
Located in what was once Stephen F. Austin’s original settlement, Austin County is home to a diverse cultural heritage of German, Czech, Polish, African American and Spanish backgrounds. It is one of the oldest counties in Texas, organized in 1837 during the Republic of Texas.
The county is located less than one hour from downtown Houston and just over two hours from San Antonio and Austin. There are three school districts in the county; Bellville, Sealy and Brazos Consolidated, as well as Faith Academy, a prominent privately funded school.
Our Mission: To provide quality, relevant outreach and continuing education programs and services to the people in Austin County by extending the resources of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service to meet identified community needs.
Extension Program: Austin County has a strong Extension program based on addressing needs identified by citizens who serve on the Leadership Advisory Board, or one of its four program area committees; Beef and Forage, Horticulture, Family and Consumer Sciences, and 4-H and Youth.
