The Aurora Historical Society of Colorado seeks to preserve the past and promote the history of Aurora for future generations through education, outreach, and stewardship.
The mission of the Aurora Historical Society shall be to bring together those people interested in history and especially in the history of Aurora, Colorado. Understanding the history of our community is basic to our democratic way of life, gives us a better understanding of our state and nation, and promotes a better appreciation of our American Heritage. The Society’s major function will be to educate the citizens of Aurora regarding its history and to discover any material, which may help establish or illustrate the history of the area. The AHS will disseminate historical information and arouse interest in the past by publishing historical material in the newspapers or otherwise; by holding meetings which include pageants, addresses, lectures, papers, and discussion; and by using the media to awaken public interest.
