Creating a progressive community has guided Auburn leaders from its earliest days. Founders Wesley Park and John Badlam Howe established the city along Cedar Creek at the intersection of two major trails—creating the beginnings of an infrastructure that promotes growth and advancement.
While dirt trails and the Pony Express have been exchanged for major highways and fiber optics, that same mission guides Auburn city officials today.
Growth came with the first store opening at Park's corners in the 1830s. And again with the founding of the Auburn Automobile Company in 1900. It continues today with a community-owned infrastructure that supports smart grid technology and the distribution of electricity—at the lowest rate in the state.
We're certain the future holds much of the same as we seek to remain in the forefront of community progress.
