Small town feel but close to Manchester, NH. Commute to Boston is about 1-1 1/2 hours. So far property taxes are relatively low. Schools are decent. Police and fire are wonderful. Neighbors are friendly but not intrusive. The Manchester Waterworks maintains many wonderful hiking trails in the town and along the lake.

I have lived in Auburn for 11 years now and I have had a very pleasant experience. I went to Auburn Village School and so did all of my siblings. The school is great, the people of this town are great, the lake is a beautiful; a perfect, quaint little town.
I moved to auburn for the 8th grade. As far as I could tell the small Auburn school system is nothing special. However, the Auburn is connected to the excellent Pinkerton Academy high school system.
