Welcome to Aurora ...

So far, we have found very little information about Aurora. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We believe that Aurora was located in Colfax County, we don't know its actual location within the county.

We've added Aurora to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Aurora - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Aurora, please Contact Us.




While we don't have the exact location of Aurora, we believe that it would have been located within present day Colfax County.

When the people of Aurora referred to themselves (known as a demonym), they are believed to have used Auroran<2>

Time Zone: The area where Aurora was located is in the Mountain Time Zone (MST/MDT) and observes daylight saving time

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Aurora, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<2>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Aurora refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Aurora may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
