toomer's corner is the intersection of college & magnolia streets in downtown auburn. toomer's corner is named after toomer's drug store which still exists today. toomer's corner is where the campus of auburn university meets downtown and is a party spot after auburn athletic events. the oak trees in the picture get covered with toilet paper after an auburn win. toomer's corner is in the center of auburn's night time entertainment area. an update: in 2010 alabama fan harvey updyke poisoned two of the 130 year old oak trees that have provided shade to this corner since 1881. updyke's reason was that he was upset over auburn's 28-27 win over alabama in the 2010 iron bowl. updyke later bragged about his dispicable act on a birmingham radio show. updyke has since been arrested and is awaiting trial.

Address: intersection college & magnolia streets.
Directions: doentown.

    The oaks were looking pretty dead when I visited. Hope the guy gets some good jail time.
