Auburn, GA

Auburn, GA is a small, rural community located between Winder and Dacula, GA.   

Auburn was established in 1892 and got its name from the special red clay that was used to dye cloth auburn-red. We love our history and small town atmosphere and work hard to maintain this feeling while growing our businesses. Auburn is uniquely sited in both Gwinnett and Barrow Counties and is easily accessible by Highways 316, 324, 211, and 29/8. Easy access to major travel arteries to both Atlanta and Athens makes Auburn the perfect place to live, work and enjoy life.

Auburn was incorporated in 1892. A plat of the town was drawn and land surveyed by the Seaboard Railroad. Kerosene lights lined the streets on each side of the railroad. Auburn became the terminus for working crews. Eight warehouses were built on the railroad siding. There was an influx of people to the town. Many new homes and stores were built. There were eight store buildings built on the north side of the railroad, but only the Poole Store (now Auburn City Hall) and the former Auburn Bank/Flanigan’s (now Rawhide Boots). There were also four on the south side, of which only one survives. Other business establishments were a cotton gin, a tanning yard and a livery stable. The gin and tanning yard were located near the railroad and operated by D.W. Ethridge. The town was booming. Today, Auburn is an active community of 7,000. Offering many activities and community festivals, Auburn’s downtown is a destination for thousands every year.
