The area in which Audubon is located today was originally inhabited by the Lenni Lenape tribe of Native Americans, who were drawn to the region for its fertile land, diverse natural and heavily wooded settings and numerous streams feeding into the Delaware River, which provided reliable water sources. Audubon received its name after well-known naturalist John James Audubon, who documented the diverse birds in the area. Audubon was officially incorporated as a borough in 1905.
