The Old Aurora Colony Museum houses all that remains of a way of life which began arriving in Aurora in 1856. The Utopian society of Aurora, was founded by Dr. William Keil, a strong, religious man.
The museum has a gift shop with books of the local area and it's history.
The Stauffer-Will Farm program is the key element in Aurora Colony Historical Society's educational outreach. Every year about 2500 Oregon and Washington school children take part in the living-history enactment of life in the 1860s on an Aurora Colony farm.
