Auburn's Historic & Cultural Sites Commission

Take a day trip to historic Auburn, just over an hour east of Rochester! See where iconic American heroes Harriet Tubman and William H. Seward lived while helping lead slaves to freedom on the Underground Railroad. View outstanding examples of Tiffany glass at the Willard Memorial Chapel, Cayuga Museum of History & Art and Westminster Presbyterian Church. Visit the birthplace of talking films at the Case Research Lab and take in a contemporary art exhibit or quilt show at the Schweinfurth Memorial Art Center. A visit to Fort Hill Cemetery is a great way to stretch your legs and take in some of Auburn’s history at the same time. Top off your day with a comedy act, play or even a dance performance at Auburn Public Theater. You will not be short of things to see and do and everything is within a 2-mile radius of downtown, Auburn.
