The Auburn Preservation League (APL) has worked diligently to promote cooperation in combining the resources of local government, organizations, associations, business and citizens in order to enhance the beauty of the Auburn community. The APL sponsors an annual Loveliest Village Christmas Tour of Homes and membership is currently has grown to 600 preservationists. The menu to the left includes links to the past Tours Homes, Board of Directors, Reception, and Contact.

Jason St. Clair did an excellent job as President in 2017 and the 2017 Tour was an outstanding success, energizing the APL Board of Directors to provide additional services for the community in 2018. APL archives are being collected, preserved, and digitized. A home owned by an elderly widow of a veteran was identified as needing maintenance and members are working to make necessary repairs and to preserve the house build before 1940. A newsletter is scheduled for electronic distribution twice annually, beginning April 30, 2018. In addition, seminars utilizing local expert builders, realtors, landscapers and others will share “how to” strategies for maintaining the beauty and integrity of historic and/or older Auburn homes and neighborhoods. Dates, locations and registration information will be announced at this website when available.

Auburn residents who are interested in preservation are invited to attend the 2018 Membership Social to be held at the Depot Restaurant from 5:30 P.M. to 7:00 P.M. on April 30, 2018. The annual member meeting and Preservation Awards will be presented at this time. Membership is not required to attend.

As 2018 President of APL, I encourage participation among all who are interested in keeping our community “the loveliest village of the plains” and hope to see you at an APL event soon.
