Two ships of the United States Navy have borne the name USS Auburn. The first was named for the town of Auburn, Pennsylvania, situated on a tributary of the Little Schuylkill River, Schuylkill County, northwest of Chester, Pa., where the ship was built. The second Auburn (AGC-10) was named for Mount Auburn, northwest of Cambridge, Massachusetts. The name itself is found in Oliver Goldsmith's long poem, "The Deserted Village" (1770).

  • USS Auburn (ID-3842) was a freighter, which was launched in 1918. She was commissioned on 24 January 1919 and decommissioned on 22 February 1919. She remained in the USSB fleet until around 1932–1933, when she was "abandoned ... due to age and deterioration."
