  • Historical Society Museum and William Tanner House: This house built in 1857 contains the Aurora Historical Society has been investigated by ghost hunters and some have seen a woman looking down the staircase.
  • Water Street Square: Located in the heart of Aurora on the Fox River, downtown Aurora and the river itself have plenty of mysterious history.
  • Root Street Cemetery: No one knows how many bodies still lie beneath the grass at Aurora's oldest public graveyard. No one knows where they lie, or even how many of them were in life.
