Overview of Auburn

Head northeast on Interstate 80 and you will find yourself in the charming community of Auburn. Located halfway between Sacramento and Tahoe National Forest, this city is perfect for those who love living near the great outdoors but still want to be close to all the amenities a big city has to offer. With a population of more than 13,500 people in an area of around 7 square miles, many California's residents are finding great Auburn apartments for rent in one of the Golden State's most tight-knit communities.

Living in Auburn, CA

The areas in Northern California were largely inhabited by Native American tribes until the 1840s when the California Gold Rush brought in many settlers, hunters, trappers and fur traders to the region that would become Auburn. Years later, the camp was officially called Auburn. Because it was just below the snow line, many miners settled in the community due to its temperate climate. However, the city saw exponential growth when the Central Pacific Railroad made Auburn one of its stops in 1865.

Around the turn of the century, the Southern Pacific Railroad also came through the area, and the community grew into a bustling transit hub. Once President Eisenhower signed the Federal Highway Bill, Interstate 80 connected Auburn to the Sacramento area, and many residents began to see all of the benefits of living in this thriving community.

Auburn Work and Study

According to California's Employment Development Department, the top employers in the Auburn area include the Auburn Area Answering Service, the Placer County Fire Department and the Sheriff Training Center. The top industries in the area include retail trade, sales and office occupations, according to simplyhired.com. Whether you are commuting to nearby Sacramento for work or staying in the city for employment, finding Auburn rentals near Interstate 80 are your best bet for getting to and from work quickly.
