Harmony lies at the heart of historic Downtown Auburn, complementing its vision for sustainable growth and vitality in a thriving city center destination. The neighborhood is thoughtfully woven around the town’s developing heart and hub, blending the two seamlessly into one vibrant walkable community. Auburn was honored as a 2021 Visionary City by The Georgia Municipal Association and Georgia Trend magazine.
Providing an iconic gateway into the city center, Auburn’s new City Hall is a nod to history with its architecture designed to recreate the historic administrative building at the town’s original college, the Perry-Rainey Institute, constructed in 1892 and torn down in 1958. With more than 33,000 square feet to accommodate current and future city operations, the Municipal Complex will be home to Auburn’s city business offices, Court Services, Mayor and Council chambers and Police Department.
Harmony’s youngest residents can find education and activities at Auburn Elementary School, just one block away.
The surviving structure of the original Perry-Rainey Center campus, the former girl’s dormitory building built in 1902, is now a newly renovated special events space where residents and visitors can appreciate the timelessly graceful architecture.
