Founded  13 June 1862, when William H. Packwood along with  Ed Cranston and George Hall called a meeting to  plat the area  that became Town of Auburn.

The area was settled following the discovery of the gold in the Griffin Gulch nearby. Today only trace of Auburn is a field of washed stones in the Blue Canyon.

Auburn was Baker County's first county seat before a daring raid by town leaders of Baker City in 1875 taking the county records and moved to Baker City.
