"Auburn is a city in east central Alabama, near the Georgia border. It is the
largest city in Lee County with a 2005 population of 49,928 (according to the
U.S. Census estimates). Auburn is the educational and cultural center of the
east Alabama region. It is the home of Auburn University, Alabama's largest
university. Auburn has been marked in recent years by rapid growth, and is
currently the fastest growing metropolitan area in Alabama and the nineteenth-
fastest growing metro area in the United States since 1990. The city's
unofficial nickname is The Loveliest Village On The Plains, taken from a line in
the poem The Deserted Village by Oliver Goldsmith: "Sweet Auburn! loveliest
village of the plain . . .""
