Description

The Dupont Bakery, located at 49 Second Street, in Auburn, was founded by Franco-American immigrant Philippe Dupont in 1893. It was known for its 'Sonny Boy' bread. In 1933, the New Auburn Fire destroyed the original bakery pictured here, which was replaced by a modern plant. Eventually the business was sold to LePage bakeries.
