The Little Town That's A Bit Old Fashioned

Aurora is nestled between the Amish Countryside and Backbone State Park. In this small and friendly community, you will find the 14 acre City Park with pavilions for hosting family gatherings, play ground equipment, walking trail, tractor & truck pulling track and historical sites. Just one mile south of Aurora is the Jakway Forest Park and Campground which is the largest park in Buchanan County.
