Auburn is an unincorporated community in Wake County, North Carolina, USA, just southeast of Raleigh. It lies about halfway between Garner and Clayton along Garner Road, a former alignment of US 70. The borders of the community are not well defined, but it is centered along Garner Road between Auburn Church Road and Guy Road.
The Wayland E. Poole House is located in Auburn and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Near Auburn, there are three of the broadcast towers for Triangle area media outlets: the WRAL HDTV Tower, the WTVD Tower and the WNCN Tower. The Mount Auburn Training Center, used by the Wake County Sheriff's Office, and the Clemmons Educational State Forest also lie near Auburn. The Mount Auburn Training Center used to be the public school house. Two large churches, Mt. Moriah Church located on Garner Road and Springfield Baptist Church, located on Auburn Knightdale Road, are also prominent landmarks. Like much of Wake County, the area has undergone a development boom in recent years, anchored by the Auburn Village residential development along Auburn-Knightdale road, just north of Garner Road.
