Aurora, Illinois

Aurora is a city in the state of Illinois that spans across four counties: Will, Kane, Dupage and Kendall. It has an area of 45.80 square miles, with greater portions in Kane and DuPage Counties. According to the 2010 census, the population of Aurora was 197,899, making it Illinois’ second largest city. Aurora is a lovely city with charming landscape. It has edged out the competition in many aspects. It was one of the first cities in the United States that installed electric lights in all their streets. This is why it is officially nicknamed the City of Lights.

History of Aurora

Downtown Aurora is located on the shores of Fox River, and was initially the village of an American Indian tribe before the European settlers came in. The U.S. Government purchased the Native American village and the entire area where Aurora is situated, including the Big Woods, through a treaty with Chief Waubonsie. The area was kept as an Indian Reservation; however, in 1834 after the Black Hawk War, the McCarty Brothers acquired the lands. They established a settlement called McCarty Mills. They cut and sold wood for building and for exportation. Three years later the settlement was renamed Aurora, and a post office was established.

At the time, there were only two villages in Aurora: East and West Aurora. McCarty’s settlement was located in East Aurora, while West Aurora was occupied by the Lake Brothers, who had purchased that side of the river from the McCartys. Unfortunately, the relationship between the two villages was marred by rivalries. To this day, the rivalry surfaces during the football games between the high schools of either side of the city. Nonetheless, the towns merged in 1857 to be incorporated as a single city. Public buildings were built on Stolp Island, an island in Fox River, because of lack of agreement between the villages on where these building should be erected. Stolp Island belonged to Joseph Stolp, who received it as a gift from his uncle, W. Frederick Stolp, in 1848 after purchasing for $12.72.

Joseph Stolp contributed immensely in the development of the city. He established the Stolp Woolen Mill Dye House on the Island. The First YMCA of the city was built on land he donated. He built a three-story building in 1866 in the city, and also founded the First National Bank of Aurora. Businesses began to flourish in Aurora. For example, Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad sited its roundhouse and locomotive shop in the city, and this establishment provided the greatest job opportunities in Aurora until the 1960s. Job seekers from different parts of Europe, including Italy, France, Great Britain, Scandinavia, Ireland, Germany, France and Luxembourg sought jobs in Aurora, resulting in significant increase in the city’s population.

Before the American Civil War, Aurora strongly opposed abolitionism and opened its doors for Mexican immigrants after the 1910 Mexican Revolution. But it paid dearly for its generosity, especially during the 1970s closures of railroad shops. Industries and factories in the city were affected; many of them closed down while others relocated to a more favorable location. This resulted in high rate of unemployment. Crime rates rose, especially during the middle of 1980s.

However, the city has overcome this problem, and remains a culturally diverse city.


The city was home to primarily heavy industries. Even though a significant portion of these industries have either left the city or closed down, heavy industry still contributes to the local economy today. There are over 150 manufacturers in the city, according to Fox Valley Industrial Association. Caterpillar, a well-known manufacturer of construction equipment and automobiles, has a production plant in the city. Additional production plants in the city make steel products, construction machinery, tools, protective coatings, office and retail shelving and electronics. Another industry that also drives the city’s economy is the warehouse and distribution industry. There are a lot of warehouses and distribution centers in the city, making it a popular distribution center for industrial gases, dry goods, auto parts and construction machinery.

Education has become a major employer in the city. There are a number of institutions of higher learning, including Aurora University. The Aurora Public Library employs close to 200.

There are other industries that make considerable contribution to Aurora’s economy, such as construction, retail trade, finance and insurance, property, rental and leasing and healthcare.
