Very quiet place surrounded by lots and lots of trees, so this is a good place to live in if you like the sounds of nature. Lots of people come out during the day and very few come out at night. Some roads don't have streetlights, so it's harder so see farther ahead while driving at night.

I have lived in Auburn all my life. It has alot of potential the more we grow. We have the cutest little town and great, friendly neighbors. I live down the street to some good public schools too. Good place to raise a family.
