Augusta Historical Museum

275 Webster Street
Augusta, MO 63332


Augusta's Historical Museum is located in the split-level brick house built in 1861 by August and Catherine Sehrt, immigrants from Hannover, Germany. August, an experienced carpenter, made furniture and caskets in the downstairs stonewalled workroom and grew grapes and fruit trees on the 8 acres around the house. Catherine cared for their large family of 2 boys and 8 girls. Augusta acquired the 6-room house and grounds in 1975 from the descendants of the Sehrt family and turned the property into a town park and a museum. The Sehrt home is one of Augusta's 8 houses on the National Historic Register.
