Our Austin Story

We need your stories, memories, photos and experiences of our historic city squares - Republic, Brush or Wooldridge. From now until the end of summer, we will be collecting stories and feedback on this site.

There are several ways to share your stories:

Only have 5 minutes? Tell your story. Attach photos and links if desired.

Have a few more minutes? Map your story. Drop a pin and share your story, idea or important place.

Deep Dive: Take a deep dive into the current storylines for Brush, Republic and Wooldridge. Suggest a new storyline. Help enrich the storylines with your own stories, feedback and photos.

About Our Austin Story

The Downtown Austin Alliance, in partnership with the Austin Parks and Recreation Department, is developing a comprehensive interpretive strategy for the three historic city squares: Brush, Republic, and Wooldridge.

THE GOAL IS TO FIND MEANINGFUL STORIES—GROUNDED IN THESE CIVIC SQUARES—THAT CONNECT TO THE PEOPLE AND PLACES OF AUSTIN.

Critical to the success of this project is the representation of Austin’s diverse community to ensure that our historic city squares tell the stories of all people. The stories collected will guide park programming and interpretive signage at the squares that reflects Austin’s multicultural and diverse heritage.
