Welcome to Auburn
Sitting on the banks of the Androscoggin River with its sister city Lewiston nestled on the other side, Auburn serves as the county seat of Androscoggin County. These two cities could actually have been showcased on this website as a “unit” as the amazing relationship of respect and cooperation between the two is an example of what success looks like.
Auburn grew through the early years by annexing parcels of land from neighboring towns, until it became one of Maine’s largest cities. When combined with Lewiston, the two cities are the second largest metropolitan area in the state. Auburn is also the home of the Good Shepherd Food Bank, the largest supplier of food to the needy in the state of Maine.
Originally an agricultural area, the arrival of the railroad and the power of the river fostered an industrial turn to the city, and Auburn became one of the state’s largest shoe producers. Other mills were also built that made bricks, textiles, carriages and more. Today, Auburn is a mixture of things past, present, and future. There are still manufacturing companies as well as service sector jobs, education jobs, and everything “online” as well. It is evident that the city cares for the health of its residents as there are community gardens popping up in many places! The food scene here is rich in “farm to table” experiences that hearken one back to the roots of this lovely city. Plan a visit to Auburn soon, and enjoy everything this city has to offer!
