About Auburn Heights Preserve

Auburn Heights Preserve, Delaware State Park’s newest attraction, is the beautiful estate of three generations of the Marshall family. Located in Yorklyn about nine miles from Wilmington, Auburn Heights encompasses over 200 acres of protected land. The four-acre estate is located on a hilltop adjacent to the Red Clay Creek, overlooking Auburn Paper Mill. The Preserve features the Queen Ann-style mansion and the Marshall Steam Museum which features an extensive collection of antique cars and steam engines, including a 1/8-size steam train able to carry passengers. In 2008, the Marshall family generously donated Auburn Heights to the State of Delaware for regular public visitation.
