One of the most significant historic buildings in Aurora. It is, in fact, a national historic site. Well-preserved with on-site curators and special exhibits and talks. Definitely worth a visit.

The house and the interior is very well kept. It is worth the 30 minutes it take to get to know the former owner and his Lifestyle.

A beautifully preserved home from 1862 with many original artificts and furniture. An amazing time capsule within a lovely setting. Special exhibits and speakers as well as tours provide something for everyone. Aurora should be proud of its National Historic Site.
