Geography

Auburndale is roughly a square, six miles north to south and 5.75 miles east to west. According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 32.2 square miles (83.5 km²), all of it land.

History

The six mile square that would become Auburndale was first surveyed in the summer of 1851 by a crew working for the U.S. government. In November and December 1852 another crew marked its section corners, walking through the woods and wading the streams, measuring with chain and compass.[1][2] When done, the deputy surveyor filed this general description:

This Township contains no Marshes. It is generally heavily timbered chiefly with Hemlock, Sugar Yellow Birch, and Rock Elm. White Pine abounds on Mill Creek and some of the head Branches of the Little O'Plane. The surface is generally level about half is hardwood land where the soil is first and second rate. Mill Creek runs across the southwest corner of the Township and the north branch of the Little O'Plane rises in this township and runs out on the north side. They are both rapid streams but all the banks are too low for Mill purposes. Local attraction exists nearly all over the Township, but is strongest near the center. There are no improvements in the Township.[3]
