Auburn, hometown of Striped Water Poets, was
originally incorporated as Slaughter in 1891 in honor of General W. A.
Slaughter. With a slaughter house in town the name quickly took on
double meanings. in 1893 the name was changed to Auburn, taken from
"Sweet Auburn, loveliest village of the plain," of the poem, "Deserted
Village" by Oliver Goldsmith.
