Inscription. The present Village of New Auburn approximates the site of Cartwright Mill, founded in 1875 by David J. and Paul W. Cartwright. To the original sawmill, powered by steam, they added a lath, shingle, and planing mill. Some buildings were of brick manufactured in the local brickyard. The second of these buildings was constructed by C.M. Tarr and still stands. Cartwright had five stores, a post office, the Omaha Railroad and a population of 336. When incorporated in 1902, the name was changed from Cartwright to Auburn and later to New Auburn.
