The City of Auburn (Sponsor)
Auburn was established in 1892 and got its name from the special red clay that was used to dye cloth auburn-red. We love our history and small town atmosphere and work hard to maintain this feeling while growing our businesses. Auburn is uniquely sited in both Gwinnett and Barrow Counties and is easily accessible by Highways 316, 324, 211, and 29/8. Easy access to major travel arteries to both Atlanta and Athens makes Auburn the perfect place to live, work and enjoy life.
Downtown Development Authority (Sponsor)
The DDA’s main purpose is for creating a climate favorable to the location of new industry, trade, and commerce, as well as for the development of the existing industry, trade, and commerce within Auburn.
Athens Land Trust (Sponsor)
The Community Agriculture Program strives to support Athens Land Trust’s commitment to neighborhood revitalization by developing a sustainable local food system in some of Athens’ most food insecure communities, strengthening the local economy and building unity and wellness at the community level.
