Here is the New Auberry Town Hall in 1985. This was built by Edison Company about 1918 and was used for community and company functions. It has survived until 1999 and has undergone a facelift, looking considerably better today than it did in 1985. It is still used for all sorts of community events, the only other meeting places available being school buildings or churches.
