Aurora has a rich history that extends back centuries and is steeped in heritage. It was initially founded as a settlement by pioneers looking for a place to thrive in the Midwest. Officially incorporated in 1889, as time passed, the city’s small-town identity and atmosphere thrives, although the population is under 200. Rich in farming, historic sites and monuments, and a plethora of recreational activities, Aurora is conveniently located near larger cities for modern amenities.
Aurora City Park is a popular amenity for locals and nearby residents alike, where you can enjoy the trail, playgrounds, pavilions for gatherings, and a truck and tractor pull track. Looking to expand their outdoor activities, locals can take a short car ride to the 2,000 acre Backbone State Park where boating, fishing, hiking, and rock climbing are popular pastimes. And, of course, this close-knit community is no stranger to annual events. From the fireworks show in July to the Fall Vendor and Craft Show, there is something for all to relish throughout the seasons. Community members can also join local clubs that host social gatherings, fundraisers, and other events, such as the American Legion, the community fitness center, and the volunteer fire department.
Neighborhoods are much like what you would imagine from many years ago – farms tucked away amid green pastures, tree-lined country roads, and a few pockets of neighborhoods with tree-lined streets where everyone knows your name and welcomes you.
