    The Austin History Center, located at 810 Guadalupe, provides the public with information about the history, current events, and activities of Austin and Travis County. Even before Austin declared itself the "Live Music Capital of the World," the Austin History Center began collecting and preserving examples of music from the local scene. Included in the sound recording collection are the recordings of artists such as Kenneth Threadgill, Joe Ely, the Grey Ghost, the Thunderbirds, Uranium Savages, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. The Austin Music Network began documenting live performances in clubs and venues around Austin in 1994. The Archives of the Austin Music Network are now part of the AHC collections.
