Welcome to Auburn! Whether you just finished unpacking the moving truck or are here for the weekend, we’re excited you’re here. As you explore the Loveliest Village on the Plains, we hope you get a glimpse of why we’ve been named a best place to live (MONEY Magazine) and one of the South’s best college towns (Southern Living).

It doesn’t take long to see the ties between Auburn University and its hometown. We at the City of Auburn are proud of this close partnership that extends far beyond athletics. It spreads into our economic development efforts, infrastructure improvements and At the core of Auburn, you’ll find our vibrant, beautiful downtown where the lines between town and gown overlap. It’s where we celebrate our victories. It’s where all facets of our community come together for parades and block parties. And it’s where we meet friends and family to shop and dine. Our bustling downtown has so much to offer year-round. But downtown isn’t Auburn’s only draw. Our city schools are nationally recognized for their excellence, and the businesses community in every corner of town is thriving and steadily growing. Auburn earns its title as the Loveliest Village on the Plains, and some of the best places to see this manifested are in our beautiful parks. About 10 minutes from downtown, you’ll find Chewacla State Park with more than 30 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails, a 26-acre lake, and RV and tent campgrounds. Have a pup in tow? Check out the dog parks and walking trails at Kiesel Park, Town Creek Park and the new Dinius Park. If nature isn’t your thing, see a Broadway play at the Jay and Susie Gogue Performing Arts Center or admire the collections at the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art — both mere minutes from campus.

There’s so much to love about our village, and that has brought more and more people to our community. The 2020 Census showed that our population has grown to more than 76,000 people, yet our smalltown charm persists. That closeknit feeling you get when walking downtown or through the streets of our neighborhoods is what many still cherish about our community and a large part of why so many of our residents have chosen to build their lives and raise their families here. And as we venture into the future, we’re planning for how we can grow wisely and intentionally while preserving all that we hold dear. We hope that you’ll get involved and join us as we envision what’s to come for our Again,community.we’reglad you’re here, and we hope you see why Auburn is a great place to visit and an even better place to call home. Ron Anders, Jr. Mayor, City of Auburn

Toomer’s Corner

Toomer’s Corner is where fans head to celebrate after a big Auburn athletics win. The rolling of Toomer’s Corner at Auburn was named as the nation’s “Best Sports Tradition” by the USA Today 10 Best Readers’ Choice travel award contest. The intersection of College Street and Magnolia Avenue is where Auburn’s campus and the city of Auburn meet. It’s also home to the famed Toomer’s Drugs, where the tradition of rolling the corner is said to have begun. The local drug store had the only telegraph in the city, so when employees received news of an Auburn victory at an away game, they would throw the ticker tape onto the powerlines of the intersection. The tradition then changed to throwing toilet paper into the trees. Pep rallies hosted by the Student Government Association and the city of Auburn are held at Toomer’s Corner during football season. Thousands of students, faculty and fans fill the downtown streets to cheer the Auburn Tigers. Encouraging spirit within the Auburn community and campus, these pep rallies boost enthusiasm and stir Auburn pride in the heart of each member of the Auburn Family. Auburn fans join together for a loud “War Eagle!” as the eagle soars inside Jordan-Hare Stadium.

War Eagle War Eagle is both a salutation and a battle cry. It is not a mascot or nickname. “War Eagle” has become a way for the Auburn Family to greet and identify with each other all over the world. It can be heard before kickoff when Auburn fans join together for a loud “War Eagle!” as the Tiger Trail Tiger Trail is a series of plaques honoring Auburn’s greatest athletes, coaches and administrators, located on the sidewalks of downtown Auburn. A new class of honorees is inducted each year to this prestigious path, which includes more than 130 of Auburn’s athletic elite. An interactive map of the Tiger Trail can be found at TigerTrailViewer.webgis.auburnalabama.org/

auburn creed George Petrie (1866-1947) was a historian, college professor and the coach of Auburn’s first football team. In addition to introducing football to what was then the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Alabama, Petrie brought innovative methods of teaching history to the university and mentored students who went on to become renowned historians. In November 1943, he wrote “The Auburn Creed,” in which he encapsulated the college’s spirit. Decades later, the Creed remains near and dear to the hearts of the Auburn Family.

Tiger Walk Tiger Walk is a tradition that began in the early 1960s. Two hours before kickoff of every home football game, thousands of Auburn fans line Donahue Drive to cheer on the team as they walk to Jordan-Hare Stadium. Tiger Walk is such a major part of gameday activities that it’s listed on the players’ gameday itinerary. Fans often carry on the tradition at away games and bowl games.

The Eagle Flight is one of the most treasured gameday traditions in all of college football. Fifteen minutes before each home football game kickoff, the eagle takes flight inside the stadium for what ESPN has proclaimed the best pregame tradition in the SEC. Even visiting fans are captivated as the eagle soars around to the thundering “Waaarrrr Eagle!” of fans.

The eagles promote wildlife conservation as a part of the education initiatives of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) and the College of Veterinary Medicine’s Southeastern Raptor Center. The USFWS permits the raptor center to house eagles and use them on hundreds of educational presentations each year, including Auburn’s home football games.

Our History

Auburn was officially founded in the winter of 1836 when Judge John Harper set out with his family and other settlers to build a town intended to serve as the religious and educational center of the area. In 1839, the Alabama Legislature approved incorporating Auburn. After two years of growth and prosperity, Auburn began vying for a Methodist male college. On Feb. 1, 1856, the Legislature incorporated the East Alabama Male College. In 1859, the college opened its doors as a private liberal arts institution affiliated with the Methodist Church. The college was forced to close its doors in 1861 when most students joined the Confederate Army, but reopened Samford Hall as a hospital from 1864-1866. In 1866, East Alabama Male College opened once again, but struggled financially. In 1868, the Legislature decided to create a public land-grant college to offer specific training to help Alabama rebuild its war-torn state. Though the trustees would have preferred not to give up their college, the state had land-grant money and no campus and East Alabama Male College had a campus, but no money.



AUBURN preservation league

The Auburn Preservation League fosters historic preservation and promotes cooperation in combining the resources of local government, organizations, associations, businesses and citizens in order to enhance the quality and beauty of the Auburn community.

On Feb. 26, 1872, Lee County Legislator Sheldon Toomer wrote the bill making Auburn the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Alabama.

The Auburn Heritage Association, dedicated to historic preservation in Alabama, was founded in 1974. Its purpose is to provide an organization dedicated to the identification and preservation of items and material of historical significance in Auburn and its surrounding environment.

One of the many benefits of living in a college town is an exciting year-round lineup of athletic events for every fan and family to enjoy. A charter member of the Southeastern Conference, Auburn fields 21 NCAA Division I-A athletic teams –nine men’s and 12 women’s. The Auburn Tigers have claimed 22 national titles, including football, men’s and women’s swimming and diving, equestrian and women’s track and field. Auburn’s official colors are orange and navy blue, and its beloved mascot Aubie the Tiger is a 10-time national champion. Building on a legacy of athletic prowess, the Auburn Tigers have achieved seven perfect football seasons including national championships in 1957 and 2010, along with 12 conference championships. Three Auburn players have won the Heisman Trophy, named for former Auburn coach John Heisman and presented annually to college football’s most outstanding player: quarterback Pat Sullivan in 1971, running back Bo Jackson in 1985 and quarterback Cam Newton in 2010.

Opening in 2022, the Auburn University Football Performance Center features a 233,400 square foot facility consisting of a 138,100 square foot football operations building, a 95,300 square foot indoor practice facility and two full-sized natural turf football practice fields. The Football Performance Center is located on the site of the former Hutsell Track on the corner of West Samford Avenue and Wire Road, adjacent to the Auburn Athletic Complex.

The intersection of Moore’s Mill Road and Ogletree Road on the south side of Auburn is home to two new shopping centers and a longtime favorite, Ogletree Village. The Heart of Auburn development, directly across from campus on South College Street, is home to several retailers and fast-casual dining choices.

Whether you’re searching for the perfect gift, putting together a special event, refreshing your home and yard, treating yourself to some retail therapy or a night out, or just checking off the necessities, there’s no need to venture far from home.

Opelika Road has also experienced a revitalization, celebrating the opening of a steady stream of new businesses including the Midtown Development.

The areas around both Exits 51 and 57 off I-85 also regularly add restaurants and retailers.

Downtown Auburn and Auburn Mall are longtime shopping and dining hubs, and both have added a number of new restaurants and retailers in the past few years as they’ve redeveloped and grown.

Welcome | 67

Celebrating 20 years of arts and engagement in 2023, the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art at Auburn University is the cultural heart of an Alabama public research institution. Students, faculty and the community are welcome to explore the visual arts, centering the museum within the university’s intellectual life and its diverse and fluid field of ideas. Collection strengths include American modernism, stemming from the university’s 1948 purchase of 36 works from Advancing American Art. The original acquisition includes works by women, immigrants, and artists of color, such as Romare Bearden, Jacob Lawrence, Yasuo Kuniyoshi, and Georgia O’Keeffe; guided by that precept, the museum actively acquires, exhibits and commissions work by historically underrepresented artists to expand cultural narrative and scholarship. Other highlights include Audubon etchings, contemporary prints and photographs, Mexican modernism, works on paper depicting the South, ceramics, and Southern visionary art. The inviting atrium is home to Dale Chihuly’s Amber Luster Chandelier, and visitors will also see the latest additions to Auburn’s collection on display. The striking modernist building features changing exhibition galleries, a café, a store, extensive grounds, and landscaped walking paths dotted with Admissionsculpture. is free. Follow @thejulemuseum or visit jcsm.auburn.edu for more information.

The Jay & Susie Gogue Performing Arts Center includes a 1,200-seat performance hall, a box office, a catering kitchen, wardrobe and dressing rooms, and office spaces. In addition, an outdoor amphitheater provides a second performance venue for the center. Spectacular shows range from sold-out concerts featuring Grammy Awardwinning artists to intimate performances with world-renowned musicians to popular Broadway productions. The center is located across the street from the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art, creating a cultural gateway into the campus and community.

AUBURN CITY SCHOOLS auburnschools.org

On the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and the American College Test (ACT), Auburn High School students consistently score above the state and national averages and are regularly in the top five in the state in these scores. With a 97% graduation rate (2021), Auburn High School graduates have been awarded more than $200 million in scholarships since 2012 ($26.8 Million for the Class of 2021).

For more information on ACS, visit www.auburnschools.org and follow all things related to the school system on Facebook (search Auburn City Schools), on Instagram (@AuburnCityEdu) and Twitter (@AuburnCityEdu).

Both Wrights Mill Road Elementary School and Auburn Early Education Center have been recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as National Blue Ribbon Schools, and Auburn Early Education Center has been named an Intel and Scholastic School of InDistinction.therealm of technology, ACS is proud of the 1:1 initiative that began at Auburn Junior High School in 2006. Expanding the initiative in 2018, iPads were provided to each student in grades 8-12, and then all seventh-grade students received devices in 2019.

As a result of growth, the Auburn City Council voted to commit the city’s 5 mill property tax fund to the school district for school construction, effective with the fiscal year 2016. Project payments from this fund must be voted on by the citizens of Auburn. Most recently, the Auburn citizens authorized payments for the construction of Auburn High School with a capacity for 2,200 students, which opened in the fall of 2017, and Creekside Elementary School with a capacity for 600 students, which opened in the fall of 2018.

Education Welcome | 71

ACS has been named the best educational value in the Southeast by The Wall Street Journal, ranked No. 6 on the list of best public-school systems in Alabama by Niche.com (2022), and has landed on the list of “Top 100 School Systems in the U.S.” in Parenting magazine.

To accommodate these students, there are 13 campuses that make up Auburn City Schools (nine elementary schools, two middle schools, one junior high and one high school).

In May 2018, the Auburn Board of Education approved ACS Facility Master Plan 2028, a 10-year plan addressing the demolition, reconstruction, and renovation of buildings as well as the impact of student growth on the capacity of facilities. Phase 1 of this plan, which began in the fall of 2018, included the reconstruction and demolition of Cary Woods Elementary School and J.F. Drake Middle School, demolition, and reconstruction of the gymnasium at East Samford School, and Woodland Pines Elementary, the tenth elementary school. The complete plan can be found on the school system’s website at www.

Celebratingauburnschools.org.diversity, ACS boasts 23 different languages spoken in the homes of students from 48 different countries of origin. ACS was the first SMART Showcase District in the U.S. with all classrooms having SMART Boards to enhance the learning experience for students and teachers alike.

As classes resume for the 2022-2023 school year, enrollment in ACS, one of the fastest growing school districts in Alabama, will exceed 9,200 students.

Back at East Alabama Medical Center, the birth of another new service occurred in fall 2021, when the hospital added a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). This much-needed service allows premature babies to be cared for locally by experienced neonatologists. Not only do the babies get the care they need, parents are able to function more easily in the familiar confines of their home community.

East Alabama Health’s newest addition is an 85,000 square foot facility in the Auburn Research Park called Auburn Medical Pavilion (AMP). Located near the intersection of Shug Jordan Parkway and South College Street, the AMP’s first floor consists of the East Alabama Medical Center Freestanding Emergency Department. It is open 24/7 and is supported by an outpatient imaging center, a laboratory and a satellite pharmacy called East Alabama Apothecary. The second floor is dedicated solely to the East Alabama Ambulatory Surgery Center, which is a joint venture between East Alabama Health and 16 area physicians.

When people think of health care in Auburn-Opelika, they think of East Alabama Health. What began in 1952 as a standalone 81-bed facility called Lee County Hospital that provided mostly general services is now a health care system with more than 200 physicians covering nearly every specialty. East Alabama Health encompasses East Alabama Medical Center in Opelika, EAMC-Lanier in Valley, the Spencer Cancer Center in Opelika, the Auburn Medical Pavilion and a host of other key medical clinics and practices that help provide a continuum of care to patients throughout an 11-county area.

Currently, the only service provided on the third floor is the Breast Health Center. The team there, led by Cynthia Lorino, M.D., provides patients with comprehensive and personalized breast health services. The center is equipped with the latest in breast health imaging, including three 3D mammography machines and two ultrasound machines.

East Alabama Health also includes EAMC-Lanier, a second hospital located in Valley. It has 98 acute care beds, a 17-bed acute rehab unit, and a 103-bed nursing home. Also, East Alabama Health operates the Auburn University Medical Clinic and a host of other entities (see eastalabamahealth.org).

East Alabama Medical Center—which started as Lee County Hospital more than 70 years ago—is the landmark location for the organization. It is a 340-bed regional referral hospital (314 acute care beds and 26 skilled nursing beds) where more than 150,000 people are cared for annually. The Emergency Department there cares for more than 50,000 patients annually, and over 2,000 babies are born each year in the hospital’s Women’s and Children’s Center. Under the leadership of President and CEO Laura Grill, East Alabama Health (EAH) is expanding and improving with each new year. Long considered one of the best places to work in the region, East Alabama Health employs around 3,500 people — second only to Auburn University in this area.

In the summer of 2019, EAMC proudly opened the E.L. Spencer, Jr. and Ruth Priester Spencer Cancer Center, located just northwest of EAMC on Village Professional Drive. The Spencers, who have a rich history in Auburn, donated $2.5 million to the funding of the cancer center construction. Mr. Spencer served on the EAMC Board of Directors from 1982–2008, including the last 18 years as board chairman.

Additionally, the City has partnered with ParkMobile to offer a contactless payment option for all surface parking downtown. Visitors have the option to pay using kiosks located throughout downtown or payments can be made on the ParkMobile app available on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.



The 26,000-square-foot terminal includes a flight planning room, meeting space, board room, pilots’ lounge, offices and room to grow. The airport has excellent instrument approaches, including an approach lighting system. An aircraft maintenance hangar and aviation education facility represent the newest airport additions. This facility, the Delta Air Lines Aviation Education Building, was funded in part by gifts from the Delta Air Lines Foundation and the Jacobson Family Foundation.

The airport will continue to seek ways to continue being a key economic asset for the community.
