The beautiful town of Aurora was built in 1886 by the Chicago Great Western Railway. Aurora incorporated in 1899. People very quickly moved to this town after the town was incorporated. Today the current population is 185. There are many wonderful things to see and do in Aurora! You can hang out at Rick's Restaurant & Lounge, or get a new style at Sliver Scissors. The schooling there is also very good. The wonderful k-5 school participates in a good behavioral program in order to teach children good manners and life skills.
