Auburn is a town of more than 4,000 people in southern Sangamon County. Many of the residents make the short commute north to Springfield on Rt. 4, but if you wanted to take the scenic route between the two communities, you can see an old brick section of Route 66, which is pictured above and below. To see this section of "The Mother Road" heading north from Auburn on Rt. 4, you should turn left on County Highway 18. It heads north and then curves back into IL Rt. 4 after about a mile and a half.
