When the mines closed in Gold Run, a local entrepreneur named Paul Webber moved his business to Auburn. He began with the purchase of this Lincoln Avenue building. Two saloons and three dry goods stores were the first to open.

Years later, Webber's daughter Bertha married Earnest Burns who was another local business owner. Burns and his partner Robert Wise started the General Gomez Cigar Factory, one of the most successful family-owned cigar factories in the area.

The buildings along Lincoln Avenue have had many successful small businesses, among them furniture stores, pharmacies, hardware stores, restaurants and saloons.

For over 150 years, family business has been the heartbeat of downtown Auburn. This plaque is dedicated to those families and small businesses who continue to keep Auburn a thriving, industrious community.
