Welcome to Auburn, NY
“History’s Hometown”

Take an hour or spend a few days, visiting Auburn’s historic and cultural sites and you’ll see why we are called ‘History’s Hometown.’

See where iconic American heroes Harriet Tubman and William H. Seward lived while helping lead slaves to freedom on the Underground Railroad.  View outstanding examples of Tiffany glass at the Willard Memorial Chapel, Cayuga Museum of History & Art and Westminster Presbyterian Church.  Visit the birthplace of talking films at the Case Research Lab and take in a contemporary art exhibit or quilt show at the Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center.  Top off your day with a comedy act, play or even a dance performance at Auburn Public Theater.  You will not be short of things to see and do and everything is within a 5-mile radius of downtown, Auburn.

Featured Event

17th Annual Amateur Chef’s Night Dinner

On Thursday, February 5, 2015 from 6:30 to 8:30pm, the Community Preservation Committee's (CPC's) signature fundraising event returns to Sacred Heart. What a great opportunity to eat, drink and be merry with friends and family, all while supporting the Willard Chapel.

What makes this food-and fun-fund raiser so special is the hearty participation of many chefs we know and love from our own community. Our friendly chefs will prepare and serve appetizers, soups, and desserts with a side of cheery banter! A carving station, with beer tasting by Budweiser joining long-time supporter Dr. Frank for wine tasting, rounds out the fare for the evening. A silent auction of quality goods and services adds a dash of excitement too! There will be ample informal seating for everyone.

Tickets for Chef's Night are a $40 donation per person and are available at the Willard Chapel office, 17 Nelson Street Auburn. Stop by anytime we're open Tuesdays through Fridays, 10am-4pm. All proceeds will benefit the CPC and the Willard Memorial Chapel.
