About Auburn, CA From the Web…
“The City of Auburn is considered one of the best places to live in Northern California. It’s bordered by the beautiful American River Canyon and nestled in the western foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Located at the crossroads of I-80 and historic Highway 49, Auburn is the county seat of Placer County. The City encompasses approximately 7.5 square miles and has a population of 12,800. Situated at elevations between 1,000 and 1,400 feet, the surroundings offer an awesome seasonal change.”
“By the 1860s Auburn was a full-fledged town with a sense of permanency. The biggest event in the 1860s was the coming of the transcontinental railroad through Auburn. The planning and building of the railroad was a complicated affair with three separate companies: the California Central, the Central Pacific (Stanford, Crocker, Huntington and Hopkins) and the Sacramento, Placer and Nevada Railroad (conceived and financed by local residents). There were millions of dollars to be made from the ownership of the first transcontinental railroad and the competition was fierce. The California Central and the California Pacific literally carried on a war “ripping up each other’s tracks by night and fighting by day.” At one point the Auburn Greys (the local militia) were called out, and they actually fired on a railroad crew intent upon ripping up a rival’s track. The Central Pacific eventually won the railroad war, and their railroad came to Auburn on May 13, 1865.”
