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 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.

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.

The 2019 Census estimate for Auburn was 5,582 residents, which ranked 62nd among New Hampshire’s incorporated cities and towns.

Full Day 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.
