The Town of Auburn provides a perfect setting that mixes rural living with the serene beauty of nature. In July 2010, WMUR ranked Auburn number one of New Hampshire’s Most Beautiful Towns. Located only 12 miles east of Manchester, Auburn is far enough away not to get caught up in the busy pace of the city yet conveniently available when the need arises. It is also in close proximity to the North-South and East-West corridors of NH Routes 93 and 101.
Auburn has a total area of 28.7 square miles. Massabesic Lake, located in the western part of Auburn and the eastern part of Manchester, is the largest body of water in Auburn and serves as the city water supply for Manchester.
As of the census of 2010, there were 4,951 people, 1,765 households, and 1,446 families residing in the town.
Kindergarten through eighth grade public education is provided for Auburn residents at the Auburn Village School. High school education is provided through a contract with Pinkerton Academy in Derry, NH.
