Augsburg is a small unincorporated community in Pope County, Arkansas, United States.

In 1883, the first German-speaking Lutheran families began arriving in Pope County, 15 miles northwest of Russellville.

Augsburg was named for the German city of Augsburg. In 1884, they built their first church, Zion Lutheran Church. In 1907, it burned and a new one was built which also burned in 1978, and replaced in 1979-80. Rev. F. W. Herzberger was the first Pastor and Rev. Thom Lasko is the current Pastor.
