Working in Auburn
Auburn is a pretty safe town with a very good school system and lots of programs for the community members! Worcester is the next city over and can offer everything you would want in a city, while not living in one.
We have lived in Auburn since 1974, having bought our first and only home here, with the idea that we would make some improvements to it and move on. With every improvement we made it became obvious that it would be very difficult to leave this location. We raised our son here and he benefited from the fine school system. Now retired, we love it even more because of its central location and proximity to Worcester which has everything we need. Also nice to have an airport 14 minutes away.
Auburn is a great community. I am endlessly impressed with the school system, particularly the special education programs. Very happy to be a resident of Auburn!
