The Plow in the Crest (Online exhibit)

The Plow in the Crest exhibit follows the path of the Fleury plow –and the family, men and women who produced it over the first half of Aurora’s history – from before Confederation to the Second World War. So important to the growth and development of the Town, a stylized version of a Fleury plow was incorporated into the official crest of Aurora, most likely adopted in the 1920s.  

Town Park: A Community Storybook (Online exhibit)

Town Park has been a focal point in the Town of Aurora for over 150 years. Over the years and across generations, this tiny plot of land has played host to thousands of visitors seeking a sense of community. It served as a casual meeting place, site of celebration, active sports field and military establishment. Woven into the very fabric of Aurora, Town Park: A Community Storybook recalls the compelling history of a place that is much more than a neighbourhood park

Town Park: A Community Storybook has received funding from the Virtual Museum of Canada' s Community Stories Investment Program.​
