Auburn, California

A Brief History of Auburn

Auburn is a city in and county seat of Placer County, California. The city is known for its California Gold Rush history and is registered as a California Historical Landmark. Auburn is 33 miles from Sacramento and 120 miles from San Francisco. The gold camp of Auburn was founded on an initial gold strike that attracted miners, saloonkeepers, gamblers, and merchants to the area. In the late 1840s and early 1850s, Auburn became more of a permanent settlement for miners; merchants and hotelkeepers noticed the influx of miners coming into Auburn, and several large public hotels were built in the area. 


Auburn was in a prime location because of its proximity to Sacramento and San Francisco. Incoming supplies were transported to San Francisco and steamboats brought goods up the river to Sacramento and were in turn brought to Auburn by road. With the increase in Auburn’s population came the founding of several Express Companies. The first Express Companies in Auburn included Gregory’s Express and Hunter & Company. Then came Adams & Company and eventually, Wells, Fargo & Company, who transported gold to San Francisco. Stagecoach lines were also established in early Auburn to distribute goods to miners.
