    THE MAGNIFICENT HAMILTON COUNTY COURTHOUSE (see "general tips") IS SURROUNDED BY DOWNTOWN BUSINESSES.

    THERE IS A SET OF "BEFORE AND AFTER" PHOTOS IN THIS GROUP. YOU WILL FIND A PHOTO OF A STATELY THREE-STORY CORNER BUILDING, AND ANOTHER PHOTO OF WHAT REMAINS AFTER VANDALS BURNED IT. EVEN IN PEACEFUL AURORA, THERE ARE KNUCKLEHEADS.

    Aurora has so many beautiful old homes surrounded by shade trees. Drive around and see for yourself.

    When working in Aurora, Nebraska, I often take a sack lunch and pull under a tree in Streeter Park to enjoy it. This park was set aside back in 1916 for folks to use, and it has been well used ever since. There are slides and things for young kids to enjoy, and lots of green open space.

Aurora Warnings and Dangers

    This house was seen burning on the morning of June 27, 2008. It is located south of Aurora along the access highway from Interstate 80. I am told that the house had just been remodeled a couple of years prior, then was hit hard by a tornado in 2008 and declared unlivable. So the fire department conducted a controlled burn to destroy it.

    Favorite thing: The town square is my favorite place in Aurora. Lots of businesses surround the old courthouse. Its a beautiful structure.

    The "new" part relates to Aurora native Dr. Harold Edgerton, the inventor of the strobe light. Each night, several strobe lights flash stop the courthouse tower in honor and memory of Dr. Edgerton.
