Interactive Map for Aurora ...

We are still searching for the GPS coordinates (ie- latitude/longitude) of Aurora.<1> Until we can find the location of Aurora, we have centered the map within Jewell County.

We have done a cursory search and haven't been able to find any evidence that Aurora still exists.

If you can help with the location of Aurora please contact us.

 
 
To capture the latitude and longitude of a location, grab and move the map marker to that location. When you have placed the marker on the desired location, release the marker to display its latitude and longitude.     Lat/Lon of Marker:  

A word of caution: Our map has been provided by Google and while we prefer Google maps, there can be issues with accuracy. We've provided this map to help you explore this area, but you should compare against other maps if you require accuracy.

We've tried other mapping services, but they all have issues. That said, we haven't found a mapping service that is consistently better than Google's. Until we can find more accurate maps, we'll continue with Google.

Footnotes ...

<1>If we encounter the name of what might be a community, our methodology is to add that name to our Gazetteer. For example, we might find a sentence like "He went north past Aurora and then turned west". While Aurora could be some kind of landmark, we think that it's more likely to be a community. We've added Aurora as a placeholder with the hope that we'll be able to add more information in the future.

Just as a reminder: Our definition of a community is rather broad and includes those places where several families lived and had a name which identified that place. The community might still exist or it might have existed for just a short period of time. Places of interest include buildings at a crossroad, families in a hollow or maybe the location of a way station. It also includes places like mines, lumber camps, ferry crossings, etc.

Also keep in mind that Aurora could have been on the original document by mistake, misspelled, the original/alternate name of a community that we've listed elsewhere or was placed in the wrong county. Sometimes a post office or train station would have a different name than the community where it's located, so two names might be referring to the same community.

Just in case there has been confusion between counties, we found that there are 6 Kansas communities also named Aurora. While this community is located in Jewell County, the others are located in the following counties: Clark, Cloud, Coffey, Cowley, Norton and Osage.
