In 2007, Auburn held a sesquicentennial celebration in recognition of the 150th year anniversary of Auburn being established as a town. A surprisingly large number of people displayed an interest in the history and heritage of Auburn, so one person got a bright idea and decided to attempt to start a historical society.
The first meeting was held in September and twelve people attended. They had no treasury, no donated memorabilia, no display cases, no equipment...in fact, they pretty much had nothing but their desire to honor the town's heritage.
Several years later, we now have: a modest treasury, several hundred pieces of donated memorabilia, a couple of thousand historic documents and photographs, numerous display cases, a professional-grade display room, several different pieces of audio-video equipment for our meeting presentations, over 60 Lifetime Members, a single meeting attendance record of 47 people, and have had approximately 300 different individuals attend at least one of our meetings. The rest is "history" (pun intended).
