The Loveliest Village on the Plains will soon be recreated in gingerbread as The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center prepares to hold an unveiling of the Gingerbread Village on Thursday, Dec. 4.
An annual event, the first Auburn gingerbread village was created in 2009. At the time, it featured only three buildings – Samford Hall, the Auburn University Chapel and the Auburn Train Depot. Since its origin, the event has rapidly grown in size and attendance.
