A Walk Through History

A Walk Through History

Take a walk back in time past the homes of Auburn’s pioneers and visionaries...

Included along this selfguided walking tour are the DeKalb County Courthouse; the E. L. Cord Estate who was president of the Auburn Automobile Company that designed and built the famous Auburn, Cord and Duesenberg automobiles; the home of Morris Eckhart whose family started the Eckhart Carriage Company in 1896; U.S. Congressman James T. Farley’s estate and the historic Eckhart Library to name a few. Each of the 44 locations was built during the first 30 years of the 20th Century and reflects the prosperity of the “Golden Age” of Auburn’s transportation heritage. This walking tour will surely enhance your visit to DeKalb County’s museums as you are transported to a time when Auburns, Cords and Duesenbergs rolled down Auburn streets.
