The Village of Aurora, New York, located on the eastern shore of Cayuga Lake is a 0.92 square-mile area of charm and wonder. While home to less than 1,000 permanent residents, Aurora offers a surprising amount of activity – most of it centered around the Inns of Aurora and their related businesses, including restaurants, a high end spa, and several impressive inns.
The Town of Aurora as a government was founded in 1818. The town is 36 square miles with a current population of approximately 14,000, which includes the Village of East Aurora, the hamlets of Jewettville, Griffins Mills, West Falls and a portion of South Wales.
Today, the entire village of Aurora is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, including the Aurora Steam Grist Mill (1976) and Mosher Farmstead of Aurora (2003). The Aurora Steam Grist Mill was a 3 1/2 story rectangular stone structure on the shores of Cayuga Lake that served as one of the first steam-powered flour mills west of the Hudson River. The Mosher Farmstead was purchased by E.W. Mosher in 1887 and remains in the Mosher Family today, still largely intact, including the large U-shaped barn.
