The building known today as the Aurora Recreational Community Center began its history as the Aurora High School. Construction began in 1934 and the first class to graduate was 1935. Through the years as a school this building had two new additions and two major fires.
*Have you ever wondered why the ball fields next to the school were called Taylor’s Fields?
*Who was the last person to graduate from the school?
*Why were there dead spots in the school’s gym?
These and many more answers will be revealed in the new season of the 2020 Talk About Aurora History when the history of the Aurora High School will be the topic of discussion.
Due to an expected larger than normal attendance, the Aurora High School program will be held at the Aurora High School Museum, 232 Main Street in Aurora.
Talk About Aurora History is a roundtable discussion held several times a year at the Local History Library @ The Depot located at 510 Second Street. This very successful program is free, begins at 6:00 and is open to the public. This program has become an interesting event for those who are local history buffs and is also helpful to those new to the community searching for details of Aurora. In addition, it provides humor as the attendees share their own folklore. New topic suggestions are always welcome.
