Aurora History: In the early days before it was settled, Aurora had an Indian village east of the railway station, where artifacts were uncovered in 1860 by Reverend Wm. Jenkins.

The Indians used call the creek that crosses Wellington Street west of Yonge Street "Red Willow Creek." Later it became known as "Tannery Creek" after the tannery that operated on the south side of Wellington Street. Today, it is part of the East Branch of the Holland River flowing north to Lake Simcoe.

By 1776, on orders from Lieutenant-Governor Simcoe, trees were cut down on muddy Yonge Street (named after Sir George Yonge, British Secretary of State for War) and this main thoroughfare was extended north to Holland landing. This opened the way for settlers and fur traders who established the first settlement which, eventually, became the Town of Aurora. Names such as General Joseph Genevieve Compt de Puisaye, British Captain William Graham, Quetton St. George and Michael Rene Saigeon were well-known in the early days, as were William Tyler, William Kennedy, John Dean Fisk, Henry Harman, Richard Machell, Joseph Hartman, Rt. Hon. William Mulock and Joseph Fleury who established the Fleury Plow Works.

About 1804, merchant Richard Machell acquired the lands at the intersection of Yonge and Wellington Streets. Soon, a hamlet sprang up at the corner, and the area became known as Machell's Corners. Later Charles Doan became the first postmaster and reeve, and helped in renaming the village "Aurora."

In 1853 the population of Aurora was 700. By 1888, the year of incorporation, the Town had 2,107 residents. As of May 4, 2012, the population of Aurora had reached 56,060. The projected population for 2017 is 74,134.
