Information Regarding Antique Appraisal Fairs, held by AMF

You may have noticed that we are purposeful in directing our fundraising efforts to specific needs of the Aurora History Museum and Historic Sites.  This is how we will operate moving forward so that our members and contributors know where their donations are going.  The 2018 fall Antique Appraisal Fair funds went to purchase the new photo clings installed on the History Museum, the 2018 Festival of Wreaths funds raised are dedicated to the Fox Theatre Center neon sign and marquee rehabilitation effort, and our April 27th Antique Appraisal Fair will raise funds for the restoration of portions of the original Gateway to Aurora sign.  This year will be our 20th year for both the Antique Appraisal Fair and the Festival of Wreaths, so please help us spread the word. 

We are grateful for your support and look forward to a fantastic 2019.  If you have any questions or wish to speak with me about the Aurora Museum Foundation please feel free to contact me directly.

Aurora's Historic Preservation Program

            The Aurora History Museum’s new exhibit chronicles the stories of Aurora’s historic landmarks and districts, and Cultural Heritage Site Program.

Take a trip around Aurora and you’ll see a lot of new development. In spite of

the growth, there are true historical treasures to behold tucked away within

our neighborhoods. Reminders of Aurora’s agricultural, military and residential past. Structures that tell the stories of industry, community gathering places

and art centers. Since 1985 the city of Aurora’s Historic Preservation Commission

has been working to save and highlight the town’s significant buildings and properties.
