The discovery of gold in Auburn was the first in the area that would become Placer County and the third such find in California. Less than four months after James Marshall’s gold discovery in Coloma in 1848, Claud Chana, Francois Gendron and Philibert Courteau, and a party of about 25 Native Americans found gold while they were camping in Auburn on their way to Coloma. The original town name, “North Fork Dry Diggings,” was changed to Auburn in 1849. Placer County officially formed in 1851 and the City of Auburn became the county seat and remains so today.
