"AUBURN - ANTISLAVERY CENTER IN THE FINGER LAKES" Auburn by mtncorg

Auburn Travel Guide: 29 reviews and 62 photos

Auburn is a nice small town lying just north of Lake Owasco in the northeastern edge of the Finger Lakes. It is a town that boasts of several former residents whose homes you can tour and graves you can find. The town has a stretch of glorious homes you can walk or drive past. The one site you can’t tour anymore which used to bring lots of visitors to the town is the Auburn Prison. This prison has provided for a lot of jobs for the town over the years and was a popular tourist stop in the 19th century. The high walls are off limits to those who abide by the laws today, however. I don’t think that is a bad thing.

The most famous of Auburn’s residents both shared a long history in their involvement against slavery - William Seward and Harriet Tubman. It is to visit this two people’s history that makes a trip to Auburn exciting and rewarding.
