Summary

Summary

Around Auburn brings to life the history of Auburn and the surrounding communities of Cayuga County over a century of change. From images of a bustling city in the 1850s through views of community events and daily life in the 1950s, this delightful visual history recalls the people, places, and events that have given Auburn its unique character. As well as images of the industries that have formed the heart of the community, and snapshots of a bygone era amidst the natural beauty of Owasco Lake, this book gives us a concise and accessible history of the famous men and women of Auburn and Cayuga County: Harriet Tubman, fearless abolitionist and leader of the Underground Railroad; Emily Howland, pioneering figure in the fight for womenas suffrage; and Theodore Case, inventor of the first commercially successful method of recording sound film.
