Situated on the Androscoggin River, opposite its twin city, Lewiston, lies Auburn, a city not as monochromatic as it sounds. From the blue of the river, to the greens and browns of the city’s many parks, it’s no surprise Auburn wasn’t actually named after the color. And with so many lovely places to walk in the city, including the beautiful Auburn Riverwalk, it’s also quite clear why Auburn was a major hub for shoe manufacturing for the majority of the 20th century. In fact, in 1917, 75% of the worlds white canvas shoes were produced by a single Auburn factory.
Today, there’s more than shoes on sale in Auburn. But that doesn’t mean it’s always easy to find what you are looking for.
