A city in Polk County, Florida

Auburndale received it’s name in July of 1884 when Major Louis McClain, the civil engineer in charge of laying out the downtown area, described the location to a personal friend, the editor of the Boston Herald newspaper. The editor’s wife said the description reminded her of her hometown of Auburndale, Massachusetts.

By the year 1900, Auburndale was steadily growing with an economy based largely on agriculture. On the evening of November 23, 1913 disaster struck when the entire downtown area was destroyed by fire. Two years later, in 1915, history repeated itself when a second fire damaged several structures.

In the 1920’s Auburndale was incorporated, and built a picturesque Spanish style structure to house city services. Today’s city hall once housed the fire and police departments.

Auburndale took numerous steps forward during the late 1940’s and 50’s. Improvements, new construction and growth continued during these years. Today the population of Auburndale is just under 10,000.
