The Town of Auburn is made up of land areas which were, in colonial times, outlying parts of Worcester, Leicester, Sutton and Oxford. With the growth of Worcester’s factory based industries, Auburn became a bedroom community whose residents turned to Worcester for employment. The first of Dr. Robert Goddard's liquid propelled rockets was fired on Pakachoag Hill in 1926 in the field on Effie Ward’s farm. It was the forerunner of today's space flights. Auburn has experienced rapid growth in industrial and business development while the population has only gained a few thousand in number since the 1970s.
Over 16,000 residents now call these 16 square miles their home. Springfield, Boston, Providence, and Hartford are all under an hour from Auburn. Auburn is extremely commuter-friendly. The easy access off Interstate 290, Interstate 90 and the Massachusetts Turnpike, Interstate 395, Route 12 and Route 20 make Auburn a popular destination for shopping, working and living.The Auburn Mall is conveniently located in the center of town.
