Auburn is a city of about 7,500 people in Barrow and Gwinnett counties in Georgia. Incorporated in 1892 it has a total land area of 6.5 miles. Auburn was founded along the rail line of the Georgia-Carolina and Northern Railroad to service the railroad and its workers. Commercial buildings and warehouses were built along the tracks and homes were constructed around the business center. Today Auburn is a peaceful small town with clusters of shops, boutiques, and restaurants.
One adorable shopping location is a row of small cottage boutiques in Whistlestop Park, next to City Hall in the town’s historic district. A close-knit community, Auburn hosts several annual events including Auburn Ever After for kids, with costumed characters from favorite movies and ending with a family movie being shown in Whistlestop Park. The Christmas season is welcomed with food, music, and the lighting of downtown Auburn in early December, and the premier festival is the Annual AuburnFest, with craft demonstrations and competitions, art, food booths, and live music.
