AUBURN IN THE LONG AGO

J. Henry Burnett was the son of Rev. J. H. Burnett (Professor & Preacher). J. Henry lived in Auburn until the 1930s when he went to Atlanta, Georgia. His love of Auburn prompted him to write to the Auburn Times about the many people he knew and admired so well. He called his writings "Auburn in the Long Ago."

Subject: Loved the site!!
 
I just happened upon this site by accident, WOW was I surprised by the vast knowledge of the contributors of the site. My husbands family have been part of Auburns history as well. My father in-law Elmer Hines has lived in Auburn his entire life and plans to remain. My husband Phillip Hines, Elmer and Linda Hines son introduced me to Auburn in 1998, when we met. Phillip was so proud of Auburn, and I not coming from such a wonderful town was confused at his admiration, that is until I was able to sample the hospitality and honest nature of this small town with a big heart. We now have 5 children together 3 of mine from a previous marriage and we spend every Autumn Day, parade, car show, Jam, in Auburn. I now claim this wonderful town as my own, and I am very proud to be part of it. I just wanted to let you know how much these memories mean to the families of Auburn. While  reading these stories I was at times almost brought to tears, as with the story of Cox variety story. Auburn has changed significantly through the years, but what has remained the same is the heart of its citizens. All can be proud to say " I'm from Auburn, Ky."!
 
Thank you and God Bless!
Jennifer Hines

An appeal by the late Charles E 'Chuck' Wood   (Back in 2002)

"This site has been a labor of love and I've enjoyed every moment that I've spent building it.  Probably the biggest pleasure I've received has, becoming re-acquainted with many old friends and acquainted with many new friends with roots in Auburn and Logan County.

At Yahoo-Geocities, the host of this site, 15 megabytes of disk space is offered for free if you allow advertising on the site, and that's how we started.  In less than six months we passed the 15 megabyte mark and it started costing and, by then, I was so caught up in the activity and the positive reactions I was getting on this project, I paid no thought to the minor cost and allowed them to charge my debit card.    Early in 2002 we passed the 25 megabyte mark and the price went up again and it's now costing $11.95 a month.    

Those wanting to contribute to the maintenance of this site should mail a check payable to Auburn Memories"

Fast Forward to 2010

Those of you who follow Auburn Memories will note that in the fall of 2009 the website closed down for a lack of support. Please don't let this happen again - a combination or many small contributions will make all the difference in keeping it alive. At that time Auburn Memories carried pictures of people and places only. I promised Charles Wood, at his request, several months before he passed away, that I would spare no effort in keeping this site up and running as long as I was able to. Today we have expanded this by combining two websites; www.auburnkyusa.com and www.auburnkymemories.com to bring, not only pictures, but a combination of history and pictures. Furthermore, we have started to include the local cemeteries (including monument pictures) and the Auburn High School yearbooks. This is a continual 'work in progress' that will not only take time, but oodles of megabytes.

We are very grateful to those who have already contributed including one of the Auburn Alumni classes for their contribution towards defraying some of the costs of maintaining this site.

Thanking you                Dermot Foley
