1830 - 1900
The city introduced services to Mt. Auburn - water, gas, schools, and public transportation. In turn, the residents provided the city with cultural, economic, and political leadership. By the late 19th century, Mt. Auburn became a densely populated neighborhood with commercial, industrial, and civic activities.
In the 1960s, some of the aging buildings were abandoned. The community began an ongoing effort to adapt the older buildings for new uses.
