Auburn, WA

A suburb of the Seattle-Tacoma area, the city of Auburn has a population of approximately 67,000. That number has increased from around from 44,000 in 2007, due largely to the city's annexation of two adjoining areas, the West Hill and Lea Hill communities, in spring 2007.

First incorporated as Slaughter, Washington, in 1891, the town was originally named after pioneer William Slaughter, who was killed during a brutal 1885 battle with Native Americans.
