Founded in 1836, Auburn is a city in DeKalb County, north of Fort Wayne in northern Indiana. Occupying 6.7 square miles, Auburn is home to more than 13,000 people. The city's official nickname is "Home of the Classics", a reference to the "classic" automobiles once manufactured in Auburn.

The village of Auburn was incorporated in 1849, and later changed to the city of Auburn in 1900. During that same year, the Auburn Automobile Company was founded. In 1903, it produced its first automobile and continued operations until it closed in 1937. The Auburn Rubber Company was started in 1913 as the Double Fabric Tire Company, making tires for Auburn Automobile Company. In the 1920s as Auburn Rubber, it became a large manufacturer of rubber toys, and moved out of Auburn in 1959. Today, a variety of industry sectors in and around the city are represented including manufacturing, education, health care, and retail. The region is home to a number of large companies such as General Motors, ITT Aerospace, Lincoln Financial Group, Steel Dynamics, and Frontier Communications Corp.
