Seward House
Auburn is a city located in Cayuga County north of Owasco Lake which is a part of the Finger Lakes.

The City of Auburn is the home town to the Auburn Doubledays minor league baseball team.

Early history

The city of Auburn was founded in 1793, before the creation of Cayuga County, by John L. Hardenbergh, a veteran of the American Revolution, who is now buried in Auburn's Fort Hill Cemetery.

From to 1818 to 1939, Auburn was home to Auburn Theological Seminary, one of the preeminent theological seminaries in the United States. In 1939, facing financial difficulties, the Auburn Theological Seminary moved to the campus of Union Theological Seminary in New York City. The only building from the Auburn Theological Seminary that stands today is Willard Memorial Hospital on Nelson Street. It is the only complete, unaltered Tiffany chapel known to exist.
