This book tells about the history of Auburn, California. Many brick buildings constructed during the 1850’s are still standing today in Auburn because brick buildings were expected to last longer through fires while some wooden buildings of the past have not survived the fires. Some of the pictures in this book include pictures of the following: Martin’s Rexall Drug Store, Placer Garage in or around 1913, the Orleans Hotel, Shanghai Restaurant, Old Town Auburn, Ivy Motel, Palm Market on Highway 99, and Placer Junior College. On June 6, 1856, James Freeland was hanged. His body was left on display for about half an hour before it was taken down. This was the last legal public hanging in Auburn. The American Hotel was a popular meeting place for Auburn residents. Shanghai Restaurant was owned and operated for many decades by the Yue Family. Only recently did the Yue Family close down the business.
