Welcome to History's Hometown
Take an hour or spend a few days, visiting Auburn’s historic and cultural sites and you’ll see why we are called ‘History’s Hometown.’
See where iconic American heroes Harriet Tubman and William H. Seward lived while helping lead slaves to freedom on the Underground Railroad. View outstanding examples of Tiffany glass at the Willard Memorial Chapel, Cayuga Museum of History & Art and Westminster Presbyterian Church. Visit the birthplace of talking films at the Case Research Lab and take in a contemporary art exhibit or quilt show at the Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center. Top off your day with a comedy act, play or even a dance performance at Auburn Public Theater. You’ll find no shortage of things to see and do and everything is within a 5-mile radius of downtown, Auburn.
This web site is produced by the City of Auburn in cooperation with the Historic & Cultural Sites Commission, a group of organizations whose mission is to promote Auburn’s attractions through collaborative marketing, programming and tourism strategies. The vision of the Commission is to position Auburn as the destination of choice in the Finger Lakes through support and promotion of its history and culture.
