A View From the Past -- Aurora in Picture Postcards (New Old Stock - vintage from 1987)
1987 was Aurora's Sesquicentennial year, marking 150 years of growth. On March 2, 1837, the name Aurora was officially adopted when a U.S. Post Office was established at this little settlement on the Fox River. Just three years earlier, the first permanent settlers had arrived, with Native Americans still inhabiting the area. This original village of Aurora was on the east side of the river; across the river, the Village of West Aurora developed. The two were united as one City of Aurora in 1857.
