A Gazetteer for the United States and Canada
Welcome to Auburn ...
Although we found mention of Auburn during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Auburn was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Auburn was located in Clark County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Auburn to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Auburn - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Auburn, please Contact Us.
