Auburndale was founded in 1880 by Frank Fuller seeking refuge from chilly winters in the Northeast United States.
In May 1911 Governor Albert Gilchrist signed into laws legislation that incorporated Auburndale Florida.
The first house was built in July 1884, four months after the completion of the railroad through Auburndale.
Auburndale received its name in July 1884 when Major Louis McClain, the civil engineer in charge of laying out the downtown area described the location to a personal friend, the editor of the Boston Herald newspaper.
The editor’s wife said the description reminded her of her hometown of Auburndale, Massachusetts.
Auburndale’s roots can be traced back to 1873, when John Ledue became the first settler on Lake Ariana.
