Giving the past a future! In continuous operation since 1906, the Aurora Historical Society is one of the oldest institutions in the Chicagoland area.

Come tour the 1857 Tanner House, visit our changing exhibits at the David L. Pierce Art and History Center or make an appointment to do research at our History Center.

Enjoy our special events such as lectures, cocktail parties for exhibit openings, July 4th Ringing of the Bells, and Holiday Open Houses at the Tanner House Museum.

We’ll be happy to see you.
