The Bastrop County Historical Society Museum is located at 702 Main Street and occupies the John Cornelson House built about 1850. The Bastrop County Museum was established in 1952. The Society began the collection and preservation of materials, artifacts, and documents relating to the history of the Little Colony of Stephen F. Austin, Bastrop County and the town of Bastrop.
