Austerlitz is a southeastern Bourbon county community on KY 57 about nine miles south of Paris. It was a station on what was once the Kentucky Central Railroad. The station is said to have been named by a resident who had visited the site of the 1805 battle in Austria.
The Austerlitz post office operated from 1884 until 1954.
