The bricks will be memorialized in the walking paths of Auburn's beautiful new Anniversary Park (formerly Little Androscoggin Park) in new Auburn. They will be installed near the brand new 40' bell tower that is the home for Auburn’s treasured and historic “Bells of St. Louis”.

Auburn City Hall has reopened. Hours of operation are 8:30AM-4:00PM, Monday through Friday, and public access to the building will be limited to the Tax Office, City Clerk's Office and the Planning & Permitting Division on the 1st floor, and the Police Department on the ground floor.

Visits to all other city departments will require an appointment (333-6601).

Proper social distancing will be observed; clear barriers have been installed at all counter locations; and limited numbers of visitors will be permitted in the building at one time. Visitors should park on the first floor of the Mechanic's Row Parking Garage and enter through the courtyard doors, as all other entrances will not be accessible. Staff will be in place at the door to assist with your visit to Auburn Hall, but delays should be expected as we all navigate these adjustments.

We encourage the wearing of face masks for anyone unable to maintain proper social distancing. We look forward to seeing you here at Auburn Hall - we appreciate your patience.


Help keep our beautiful Androscoggin clean. When you mow, leave the clippings! It is great for your grass (free fertilizer) and helps reduce the need for chemicals. The best part? Less polluted runoff in our precious rivers, lakes and streams. Learn more at
