History & History Related Items

In 1848, a mining camp named North Fork Dry Diggins was renamed. The namesake was Auburn, New York. It began as a gold town. Once the gold panned out, the area was lucky to have the railroad come through. Orchards were also planted which helped the local economy. The current town of Auburn is apart from the "old town" Auburn. It has been restored to former greatness while retaining its gold town flavor. Both Auburns are thriving, growing areas.
