Whether your family arrived here centuries ago or last week, your tale is part of Auburn: An All American Story
This year for the Uniquely Auburn program we’re collecting short stories about the people and past of Auburn. No boring history lesson—this is going to be fun, surprising, and even spooky stuff from the past and the present.
Here are just a few of the stories ideas that might make the program. We’ll also publish some on this blog.
– The lion in the grocery store
– Where did Auburn Riverside get their colors?
– The vampire of Auburn High
– Pig Hill and how it got its name
– Auburn’s most famous horse
– A town called Slaughter
– The barber and the creepy customer
– The astronaut and the fighter pilot
Do you have a story that you think would be interesting? You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll also be setting up some “Tell Your Story” sessions around town in the next few months. Sign up using the form at the right so you’ll get news about our sessions, stories that we publish, and other Uniquely Auburn news.
Help us tell the tale of our city through stories of our people and history.
