About Old Town Auburn: Historic Old Town Auburn is a small, quaint town still reminiscent of the
49er gold rush era when it was established. Old Town is located in just about 2 square blocks, at the base of the
historic Placer County Courthouse, right at the northbound Maple offramp of the I-80.
Various streets around the center of Auburn will be closed to vehicle traffic, but there will be nearby parking
lots and side streets, with shuttle service to the best viewing areas.
There will be a few bleachers in Old Town directly in front of the very nasty hairpin turn at the bottom of
Lincoln Way. So stick around, have breakfast or lunch, and enjoy the Amgen from quaint Old Town Auburn.
