Originally called Pigeonville, Auburndale was given its present name in 1845 by the Reverend C.D. Pigeon (4) (after whose family the village was presumably originally named).

Auburndale lies along the banks of the Charles River, and shares a border with the neighboring city of Waltham.

Auburndale was home to Norumbega Park, one of the successful "Trolley Parks" of the last century, and home to the legendary Totem Pole Ballroom. Here is a web site dedicated to its history.

Ware's Cove is site of the summer Thursday Afternoon Children's Performances sponsored by the Parks & Recreation department.

The Auburndale Community Association has its own web page. In addition, there is a Lasell Neighborhood Association.

There's a site about the Auburndale Rail Station and its history.
