Living in Auburn Hills, MI

In 1921, the town of Auburn was born at the corner of where Auburn and Squirrel Roads meet today. The first settler, Aaron Webster named the town after Auburn, New York that was nestled along the Clinton River. In 1826, streets were laid out, rivaling nearby town Pontiac in growth. Automobile pioneer, John Dodge, bought a farmhouse about three miles northeast of Auburn Heights. After he built a sawmill and grist mill, many settlers were attracted to the area. When his oldest child married, they built a massive country retreat 2.5 miles north of the town with a pool, horse stables, a 5,000 acre colonial revival home and hunting land. Pontiac Township purchased the land in 1976, and this property is now known as the Auburn Hills Civic Center.

The town was officially named Auburn Heights in 1919. In 1983, Auburn Heights and Pontiac Township joined together to create Auburn Hills.
