The Town of Auburn, New Hampshire provides a perfect setting that mixes rural living with the serene beauty of nature. Auburn, only twelve miles east of Manchester NH, one of the state's largest cities, is far enough away not to get caught up in the busy pace of a city yet conveniently available when the need arises.

Auburn includes the largest portion of Lake Massabesic which supplies water to the surrounding communities.

Auburn had its start, originally as part of Chester where it was known under other names like Chester Woods, Chester West Parish and Long Meadow.

The Town which was first settled in 1720, and incorporated in 1845, has maintained a slow pace in growth and a relaxed attitude.
