We thank all the people and labor it took to get here, and the unwavering support of all of our community and friends in preserving the history of Aurora for generations to come.


Additionally, Aurora Museum Foundation successfully hosted a Sold Out fundraising dinner at Heritage Eagle Bend Clubhouse to raise money for a new permanent Aurora exhibit at the Aurora History Museum. The 120 person dinner included a silent auction with amazing items donated by businesses, organizations, and individuals in Aurora. Funds raised at this great event will help pay for the design, fabrication, and installation of an exhibit illustrating the stories of the people, places, and events that shaped Aurora’s 123 year history.
