Auburn, New Hampshire

A “slow-paced, relaxed attitude” best describes the town of Auburn, New Hampshire.  This small town of just over 5000 people contains a large part of Lake Massabesic, the area’s fresh water supply.  Municipal parks dot the town’s landscape with dozens of miles of hiking and mountain biking trails interweaving throughout the town itself.  Auburn, New Hampshire has made maintaining the town’s New England charm one of its top priorities and by limiting future industrial growth looks to keep things slow-paced and relaxed for its residents.

First a part of neighboring Chester, NH, Auburn was once known as Chester Woods, Chester West Parish and Long Meadow.  The town, as well as several others in the surrounding states, was named after a village in the poem “The Deserted Village” by Oliver Goldsmith.  The poem begins:

Sweet Auburn!  Loveliest village of the plain.
Where health and plenty cheered the laboring swain
Where smiling spring its earliest visit paid,
And parting summer's lingering blooms delayed

The town of Auburn was finally incorporated in 1845 and is still considered by its residents to be the loveliest village.

Auburn has direct access to East/West Route 101 and is within five minutes of North/South Interstate Route 93.  This makes Auburn convenient to anywhere in the state.  If you live in Auburn, Manchester is less than 10 minutes, the seacoast less than 45, the White Mountains about an hour.  Boston, Massachusetts is just an hour south as well, but there’s plenty to do without leaving Auburn at all.  If you enjoy hiking, trail jogging, mountain biking, dirt biking, cross-country skiing or snowmobiling, Auburn, NH is your dream come true.  Thanks to an extensive trail network and an abandoned railroad bed that runs through Auburn and several surrounding towns, it is quite possible to get just about anywhere in the state by way of an offroad vehicle.  Many of these trails surround Lake Massabesic and with picnic areas in abundance, the family can make a day of hiking or biking through some of the most scenic cliffs and waterways southern NH has to offer.  Boating and fishing are very popular in the area as well, so the outdoor enthusiast will have plenty to do in Auburn.
