Already inhabited during the neolithic period, Augny developed with the Roman occupation and the arrival of Avinius, who gave his name to the town. Augny’s history is strongly linked to Metz, the Antiquity, and the evacuation of its residents in 1940. Metz castle-farms of aristocratic families and the Château d'Augny can be found here.
