Auburn History

Auburn is one of the oldest towns in California. In 1848, a group of gold miners were originally headed for Coloma, California when they stumbled upon what would eventually be called the Auburn Ravine. The miners found gold in the ravine and decided to stay to prospect the area. The land soon developed into a mining camp and was given the name Auburn in 1849. 

In 1865, the Central Pacific Railroad reached Auburn as it was being built from Sacramento to Ogden, Utah. Today, the restored town features many buildings from the 19th century including houses, retail buildings, the fire station, and the post office.
